Over 400 teams from cities and towns across south Tamil Nadu participated in the Kovai edition of the quiz. The teams were enthusiastic and keen to crack the posers thrown at them by quizmaster Pickbrain. The prelim featured 20 questions from various fields of IT and the top six qualified for the final.

GRD MHSS - Kedar Joshi and Gokul Gopakrishnan

The final witnessed a close contest for the first couple of rounds as all the teams were battling on an even footing. As the quiz progressed through ‘Data Clouds’ and ‘Big Data’ powered by amazing quiz animation created by Blackboard Animation, the buzzers came into play and started making a difference instantly.
The duo from GKD started moving ahead and with every passing round became even stronger as they scored in continuous succession. They seemed so well prepared that they had won the quiz even before the final round started. The battle for the second place seemed a little tricky with teams from Chinmaya, Stanes and Suguna doing their bit but eventually it was St.Judes Kotagiri which got there with some smart thinking.
The guest of honour, Mr.Ravi Vishwanthan, Head of Emerging Markets for TCS, remarked that “Some years ago when teams from here travelled to Chennai for the quiz we thought of creating one exclusively for you here and today that has led to so many schools doing well in IT from here”.
