Mayo College Girls’ School is immensely proud to share that Gauri Maheshwari(M/2802) of class 8 has been awarded the Pradhan Mantri Rashtriya Bal Puraskar, 2022, in the field of calligraphy. The Pradhan Mantri Rashtriya Bal Puraskar is the highest civilian award in the category of children aged between five to fifteen. It is awarded to children with exceptional abilities and outstanding achievements in the fields of innovation, sports, arts and culture, social service, scholastic achievements and bravery. Each year the award is conferred by the President of India, Shri Ram Nath Kovind, in the Rashtrapati Bhavan. Keeping in mind the ongoing Covid 19 pandemic, it was not possible to organise the award ceremony. Therefore, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi interacted with the winners on a virtual platform. We extend our heartfelt congratulations to Gauri and wish her many more such accolades in future.
