State youth festival from Dec 7, sports meet from Oct 26


Thiruvananthapuram: The educational panel on Tuesday decided to keep the no-frills Kalolsavam and sports meet as a three-day affair. The state school youth festival will be held at Alappuzha on December 7, 8 and 9 and the state sports meet will be organized in Thiruvananthapuram on October 26, 27 and 28.

Earlier, the state government had plans to shelve the youth festival and sports meet as Kerala is reeling under the impact of August deluge, which killed over 400 people and left a trail of destruction in several districts. However, the government later decided to conduct the events without any frills and on a reduced budget.

The youth festival, originally planned for five days, will feature only stage competitions at the state level. The decisions were taken at a meeting of the monitoring committee convened by secretary of general education A Shajahan.

The proposals will be submitted to the government for a final call.
