Advisory for Online Preliminary Competitions

We believe that maximum number of children should have access to participation in various events. Crescendo 2020 has made it possible, and we suggest that a “Preliminary rounds” be organized at School levels, so that best of talents can come out and participate in the grand finale! Please note this is just an advisory from the Organizing Committee, and the preliminary rounds are to be monitored by individual school Headships in discussion with Management.

  • Preliminary rounds for selection of students will be held at the school level
  • Suggested dates- 1st August- 7th August 2020
  • The school will be the deciding body and will have the sole discretion on selection of students to be sent for Crescendo’20.
  • Suggested Mode of conduct- House competitions or class competitions-Every house may divide the students in the four categories of Crescendo i.e. Maestros, Trendsetters, Legends, Elites. They may then conduct inter-house competitions on a virtual platform for every event.
  • We advise not to call students to schools or promote gathering of any kind.
  • The rules of Prelims may be the same as Crescendo events. However specific topics and conduct could be decided by the school heads
  • Participations- House Masters/ Class teachers / Coordinators to discuss and float at School level to ensure maximum participation and fair selection
  • The selected participants must be registered for Crescendo main events by 10th August
