Textile Quiz 2019

Kasthuri Sreenivasan Memorial Textile Quiz – 2019

4 Inter Collegiate Quiz Competition for Students of Textiles

To commemorate the Silver Jubilee celebrations of our Kasthuri Sreenivasan Culture Centre and in memory of our Founder Trustee Shri Kasthuri Sreenivasan, an Inter-Collegiate Quiz Competition exclusively for Textile Students was introduced in the year 2013. Enthused by the overwhelming response from the Academic Institutions, we have decided to conduct this competition once in 2 years.

As per the feedback obtained from the students after the 1 quiz programme, it has been decided to conduct two quizzes, one for Diploma and the second for Degree students. Accordingly, we conducted two quiz programmes in September 2015 and 2017 with your support. Now, we propose to conduct the 4th quiz programme in the same manner on 21st September 2019.

It is proposed by our coordinating committee that 3rd year Diploma students studying textile related courses in Polytechnic Colleges will be covered in Group I. Under Group II, students pursuing their 3rd & 4th year in Degree courses of Textiles/Fashion Technology/ Textile Chemistry / Textile Engineering / Handloom Technology will be covered. TexQuiz programme will be conducted separately for Group I & Group II.

Detailed brochure will be sent to you by end of this month. As a move to motivate & enthuse students of Textile Technology, this event is being organised and there will not be any entry fee. Each institution can send five teams for this programme. Online registration only eligible.

An enrolled team in each group will first undergo a qualifying round separately which will be in written format. They will have to take objective questions with multiple options to be answered within a prescribed time limit. From this round, six teams in each group will qualify for the quiz finals.

The finals shall have 10 rounds of questions for each group including an audio round, a picture identification round, logo identification round and rapid-fire round. Questions for the quiz as well as written test qualifier shall be drawn from different functional areas of textiles namely, raw material, spinning, weaving, knitting, non-woven, chemical processing, garmenting, operational measures and textile engineering.

What is at Stake?

Competing teams will vie for the “Kasthuri Sreenivasan Shield” which will be awarded to the 1st prize winners of each group.
