HOUSTON, TEXAS, December, 2000: To commemorate India's Millennium Republic Day Celebrations to be held at the George R. Brown Convention Center, Houston, Texas, on January 27, 2001, the organizing committee is holding an essay competition covering various aspects of India. Dr. S. Kannappan, co-chairman of the committee, said the purpose of the competition was to generate interest in Indian heritage and culture among the youth. "At the very least, they will feel compelled to open a book and do the research," he said. Suggested topics include a history of India and/or Indian immigrants to North America, economics, culture, performing arts, folklore, impact of Indian immigrants on main stream America, science, technology and engineering. Students from elementary, middle, high school and undergraduates studying in the USA are eligible to submit essays or articles may contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
