At HCL, we believe in leveraging our strengths to maximize human potential and help people and communities unlock possibilities to drive deeper impact. As part of this philosophy, HCL consistently aims to bring innovations, break barriers and reimagine solutions that not just enable individuals to emerge stronger but also lead to transformative changes for society at large. A key step in this direction is that we empower young individuals with 21st century skills that they can leverage to come up with innovative solutions for real-world problems as they grow into leaders of tomorrow.

Also, the top 20 performers (across each grade) from the competition will earn a badge of “India’s Best Problem Solver” & gift prizes and gadget worth Rs. 5,000.
