Quizmaster Pickbrain took the stage as cheers echoed all over. He presented a not so tough set of 20 questions helping the teams with options where they wanted them. The following teams made it to the final.

The quiz witnessed teams from all over the state taking part in underlining the popularity of the event. It was heartening as always to see two of these teams make it to the finale. As the quiz got underway it was the duo from Belpahar, having travelled over 400 km, who started in style to establish an early lead.
In the latter stages, it was the Sai International boys who inched ahead but lost some ground taking half chances. The Belpahar boys got back into the lead and maintained the same tempo to win a famous victory and show that talent is no longer confined to the students in the big cities.
The guests of honour Mr. Manas Ranjan Panda, Director, STPI Bhubaneswar, Mr. Damodar Padhi, VP and Head Talent Acquisition TCS, and Mr. Manoj Panda, Center Head TCS appreciated all the teams and wished them to do well in their lives. The Chief Guest urged the youngsters to focus on innovation and research in their careers.
