Welcome to Contest for a Cause-2013

There is abundance of talent and skill in our country. Right from school children to college students to grownups who go to work and those who are retired, everyone has some special skill or talent. How about using those special skills or talent for a social cause? And, that is how Contest for a Cause (C4C) is born.

C4C (Contest for a Cause) is a National Art-Technology Fest, the first of its kind, conducted by Team Everest on account of Joy of Giving week. It is an annual initiative that aims to provide a platform for people across the country to exhibit their artistic and technical skills through an array of competitions with a prime focus on promoting Volunteerism.

Participation in this contest in 100% free. The entries received through contest for a cause will be put up as exhibition in schools, colleges and corporates across the country to create awareness about volunteering and other social issues.

Prize money for this initiative is raised from various sponsors. We have identified 12 causes across the country for which the money raised (Rs 12 Lakhs) from sponsors will be contributed.  That is, 100% of the prize money won by the volunteers goes to a social cause. Thus, you can use your special talent to win a contest and contribute the prize money to a social cause of your choice. The contest is conducted online, thus giving an opportunity for every Indian across the world to participate and make a difference.

Team Everest welcomes you for the C4C launch event and your physical presence will make a big difference to us.
