For State-level contest, we had to send entries by making video of the art. Now, those selected for National-level will have to make the art piece live during the virtual session which is scheduled to be held at Department of State Education Research and Training (DSERT) studio in Bengaluru. Juries will evaluate the participants online from New Delhi.”
