Jalandhar students showcase creativity and diversity through art 

Students of Apeejay Institute of Management & Engineering Technical Campus participate in Art Simpson Painting Competition; win several positions



Participating in extracurricular activities fosters personal growth, enhancing skills like teamwork, leadership, and time management. It boosts self-confidence, provides social connections, and enriches a well-rounded education, preparing individuals for success in diverse aspects of life.

With this perspective,  Apeejay Institute of Management & Engineering Technical Campus (AIMETC) in Jalandhar is always a step ahead in encouraging students to participate in extracurricular activities that will help in  fostering holistic development. Thus, recently students of AIMETC participated in the Art Simpson Painting Competition organised by Alpha Mahendru Foundation in collaboration with Jungle Killol Foundation.

More than 15 teams took part in the competition including students of B Tech (CSE), BCA, MCA, MBA, BBA, B Com (H), who participated with full enthusiasm in the event. Students chose quite sensitive themes for the competition.

Rahul from BCA, who portrayed the independence of India in a very creative way, bagged the first position. The second position was shared by Manya Wadhera of MBA-III and Vanshika of BBA-III. Their themes were “Heritage Preservation” and “Inner Peace”, respectively. 

Sharing her excitement Vanshika mentioned, “The Art Simpson painting competition organised by Alpha Mahendru Foundation in collaboration with Jungle Killol foundation helped me explore the creativity to the extent which was somewhat undiscovered within me. Through my painting I tried to portray my experience of the lives surrounding myself and I think those who have witnessed such an experience/path in their own life and have been persistent on their decisions could understand my painting deeply.” 

Similarly Manya Wadhera said that it was a great experience participating in this competition “It helped me to express my feelings towards our rich heritage and culture.”

Meghdeep Kaur of MCA-I who bagged the third position said, “Something I really appreciate about the Jungle Killol Foundation is that, they put a lot of effort in enhancing the skills of students and encourage them to know about the culture of India and how can we do good for our society while helping us enhance our communication skills. Well, it was a great experience to be part of this competition.”

Finally, Dr. Rajesh Bagga, Director at AIMETC, Dr. Avnip Deora, Convenor DSW and Mr. Ramesh Mahendru, President Mahendru Foundation honoured the students with trophies and certificates. Dr. Bagga congratulated the winners and motivated them to participate in similar extracurricular activities for their overall personality development.

The faculty coordinators of the event were Mr. Daljeet Singh Matharu from School of Information Technology and Mr. Pahulpreet Singh from School of Engineering.
