In a bid to provide students a platform to showcase their knowledge about sports and fitness, ‘Fit India Quiz’ competition will be held across the country. It will be the first-ever fitness and sports quiz to be telecast on various sports channels.

A detailed guideline has been issued through a circular to all states. The first national-level quiz for students will give away cash award of Rs 3.25 crore to schools and students.

“The objective of the quiz is to provide a national platform for students to showcase their knowledge about fitness and sports and create awareness among them about India’s rich sporting history, including centuries old sports, our centuries old indigenous sports, national and regional sports heroes of the past and how traditional Indian lifestyle activities hold the key to a fit life for all,” a circular read.
