Adding another achievement to the list of 2019, IIM Indore’s two teams have won the First and the First Runner-up Position in the Tata Crucible Campus Quiz Competition on February 05, 2019. The team consisting of Aakash Kumar and Deepak R (both from PGP 2018-2020 batch) bagged the first prize and the team comprising of Siddharth Jain (FPM 2017) and Aditya Kumar (PGP 2018-2020) received the Runner-up Position.
The event was conducted at the Devi Ahilya University Auditorium, which witnessed participation of over 150 teams from across the state. After the prelims round, nine teams were shortlisted in the semi-finals, followed by the finals for the top three teams.
After rigorous rounds, Aakash and Deepak’s team won the competition. ‘Our ability to connect the historical entities with images, e.g. landlord’s game, Maybach, etc. attracted the judges. This was our USP which helped us win the competition’, they said. They won a prize money of Rs. 75,000.
The Runner-up team—Siddharth and Aditya said, ‘We adopted a conservative and avoided negatives throughout the game but played for the win in the questions we were sure of. This helped us be prompt and give the correct answers in short time and become the Runner-up winning team’. This team won Rs. 35,000.
IIM Indore congratulates both the teams for their achievement.
