Be known for shaping the leaders of tomorrow

Tata Building India School Essay Competition is India’s most prestigious essay competition held every year across schools from over 400+ cities across the country.

It is one of the key initiatives undertaken by Tata Group with the objective of motivating the youth and fostering the spirit of nation building. Through this essay writing competition, Tata Group wishes to encourage today’s young minds to become thoughtful leaders of tomorrow.

Each year, school students are given this unique opportunity to showcase their writing skills and get recognized at 3 levels – the school level, the city level and the national level. To ensure a level-playing field, the competition is divided into two categories, viz. Junior Category for students of classes 6th - 8th, and Senior Category for students of classes 9th - 12th.

Why should your school participate in the Tata Building India School Essay Competition?

Drive student engagement and holistic learning

A national competition like the Tata Building India School Essay Competition is a great way to foster holistic learning that is both fun and rewarding for your students. With an essay topic around nation building, students are encouraged to research, explore and think on a vast variety of subjects that make them more socially and intellectually aware.


Help your students develop critical skills

Essays are a great way to build independent thoughts and opinions. Structuring one’s thoughts within word limits helps students frame subtle connections concisely that help articulate ideas and concepts clearly. This not only helps students write better at their

academic exams but also communicate more effectively.


National level recognition

Ultimately, a school’s achievement lies in the success of its students. Tata Building India School Essay Competition is unique in its structure of providing participating school students an opportunity to win at 3 different levels (although the essay is written
only once). Winning essays at the school-level are further evaluated at the city-level and ultimately at the national-level. There are prizes and recognition given to winning students and their schools at all the 3 levels. The crowning moment for the national-level winners is the intended visit to New Delhi and a face-to-face meeting with a national dignitary.
