If there is one BIG EVENT every year for the kids, it’s certainly the Indian Skateboarding Championships. This year it took place in Chandigarh, Punjab. Nine of the Janwaar kids qualifed on Madhya Pradesh state level – five boys and four girls. As usual we extended the team and we invited 14 kids for the travels. We rented a bus for the entire trip and added some extra days. On the way to Chandigarh the kids stopped in Agra to visit the Taj Mahal and the Red Fort, and on their way back they stop over at Prakriti School in Noida, our Open School Project partner.
The Championships became a big festival for the Janwaar girls! Two of the three gold medals went to Janwaar!!! Asha and Dilasha were the winners, Durga in the youngest agegroup won silver! They rocked the championships! The boys had bad luck and didn’t win. But at the end of day, it didn’t matter – the trip itself was worth going! The team was in high spirit and enjoyed every minute to the fullest.
