The 11th National Biennial Competition for Green Grassroots Unaided Technological Innovations, Ideas & Outstanding Traditional Knowledge

NATIONAL INNOVATION FOUNDATION (NIF), an autonomous body of the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India aims to recognize, respect and reward grassroots technological innovators and traditional knowledge experts.

Eligibility

STUDENTS
Young inventors and innovators (upto class 12th) are invited to send their ideas or innovations for a special category of awards for them. These should be unsupervised, an outcome of their own creativity, without any support from their teachers or outsiders. There will be prizes worth Rs 30,000, 25,000 and Rs 20,000 for the best three entries and several consolation prizes of Rs 10,000 each in this category.

WHO CAN APPLY
Individuals, from the unorganized sectors of the society, who have achieved distinction in improving quality and productivity without the aid of formal institutions, are invited to participate in the 8th National Biennial Competition for Unaided Green Grassroots Ideas, Innovations and Outstanding Traditional Knowledge. Ideas for innovative technologies which have not yet become products are also welcome.

NIF is very keen that women knowledge holders/innovators participate in this campaign in as large a number as possible. We have had rather limited participation from women in the past and we wish to rectify this situation with the cooperation of groups working with women in the unorganized sector.

WHO IS NOT ELIGIBLE
The resources of NIF are dedicated to supporting innovators and traditional knowledge holders from the unorganized sector only with no/limited exposure to formal system of education and/or professional/technical training. Therefore, entries from professionals that is, those having professional/ post graduate degrees or affiliation with formal institutions or those who have gained long professional experience in public or private sector, are not accepted. Projects of students enrolled in engineering, bio technology or any other professional/ post graduate courses will also not be considered.

However, if anybody develops a technology in their individual capacity without any institutional help and that has grassroots applications, it may be considered for inclusion in a separate database of innovations by professionals, inclusion in which would not be eligible for any recognition, technical or financial support. NIF may help them only through linkages.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE
Individuals or groups may send as many entries as they wish on plain paper providing 

a) technical details of the idea/innovation/traditional knowledge practice along with sketches, photos or videos wherever available/necessary b) genesis of idea/innovation or traditional knowledge c) educational qualification of the innovators/ traditional knowledge holders and occupation, d) complete postal address with pin code and contact number(s) and e) any other information that may seem necessary.

Winner: $2,000 (1 Winner)
Runners-Up: $500 (3 Winners)

SELECT ONE OF THE FOLLOWING THREE TOPICS:
An important early event in the novel is the destruction of the Phoenix-Durango. What factors make its destruction possible? How does this issue relate to the meaning and theme of Atlas Shrugged? In your answer, consider what Rand has to say in her 1962 essay “The Pull Peddlers.”
Capitalism’s defenders usually appeal to the “public good” as the moral justification of capitalism. Contrast this approach to defending capitalism with Ayn Rand’s approach in Atlas Shrugged. In your answer, consider what Rand has to say in her 1965 essay “What Is Capitalism?”
Francisco d’Anconia and his teacher, Hugh Akston, advise more than once: “Check your premises,” because contradictions do not exist. Identify at least two major apparent contradictions that the heroes of Atlas Shrugged encounter, and explain, with reference to the novel, what premises they need to check and correct in order for them to understand that these “contradictions” do not exist.
