Code For Freedom 2008 Prize Distribution Ceremony
By Vasudha Amrit on Aug 03, 2009
I got the great opportunity to be a part of the national level contest Code for Freedom 08 right from the beginning i.e. organising a talk about it in college, and straight till the end, i.e. the award ceremony. It was a coincidence that my college was reopening on the 20th June and the function happened to be on the 18th June, hence giving me a chance to attend it. I was thanking my stars for it and it felt quite nice as I had seen the contest at various stages and had also participated in it in many ways, as a participant, replying to mails on the Google groups, working with organisers etc. Also it could not get any better after Lalith Suresh, a fellow Campus ambassador and a good friend bagged the first prize :P
So we all reached Fortune JP Cosmos on the 18th morning, where the ceremony was to be held. It was hosted by Abhishek and Amit who did a good job. KNR and Suvendu talked about the contest in detail. Ganesh also talked about his and our team's involvement in the whole process.
Later on, participants got certificates of participation, I also got mine from Suvendu plus a t shirt :P. Finally the winners were given their prizes, Lalith was literally jumping out of his chair to recieve his laptop :D. Nischal, another CA got the second prize which was an Ipod touch. I also met all the other winners who had come from all over India to recieve their prizes. It was nice interacting with them.
Then, finally we moved towards the restaurant for lunch which was awesome :D. Thus ended a great day! :D
