San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 20, 2013
The US Hindi Foundation, an educational organization dedicated to promoting and teaching Hindi in the United States, is holding its second annual Jano Hindi Bee on March 23, 2013. Kids from around the Bay Area will test their Hindi knowledge and vie for the grand prize in what has become a very popular event and the world’s only Hindi Bee.
The Jano Hindi Bee was first held in 2012, with over 400 participants and 600 people in attendance. After the success of its first installment, the US Hindi Foundation is expecting an even larger draw for this year’s competition.
It is broken down into three competitive rounds:
5 Word Elimination – Participants are asked 5 Hindi words. They then have to tell the meaning of each in English and create a sentence in Hindi with it. After each student completes five turns (words), the one with the lowest score will be eliminated.
Lightning Reading Round – Students have to read Hindi sentences within a specified time limit.
Writing Round (Tie Breaker) – If there is a tie, participants write sentences in Hindi. The highest scorer at the end of this round is the winner.
The Jano Hindi Bee will have four separate divisions, where 1st, 2nd and 3rd place trophies will be awarded.
“We are extremely excited to host our second annual Jano Hindi Bee this year,” said Ruchita Parat, Founder of the US Hindi Foundation. “Last year everyone had a great time and it’s very rewarding to see all of our students so excited to be learning Hindi. We’re anticipating an even larger crowd this year and can’t wait to see everyone vying for the top prizes. March 23 can’t come soon enough!”
