First Kochi Round of the World Scholar’s Cup on 01 and 02 February

National Edu News

The first-ever Kochi Regional Round of the World Scholar’s Cup will be held at GEMS Modern Academy, Kochi on 01 and 02 of February 2020 from 10 AM to 04 PM. The World Scholar's Cup is a global celebration of learning, leadership, and the love of alpacas. It brings together over 50,000 students and 50,000 alpacas in 75 countries each year.

The Kochi Round will use the 2019 theme "A World on the Margins".  It is open to students between the ages of 8 to 18. You may contact GEMS Modern Academy to participate: +919895500557, 04842587800. Also, you can visit https://www.scholarscup.org/ for more details about the event.  

Rajagiri Media Pallikkutam Magazine is the media partner of the Kochi round.

Daniel Berdichevsky is the founder and executive Director of the World Scholar’s Cup which has a mission to bring together a diverse global community of scholars and leaders, to encourage students to discover and practice new strengths and skills, and to celebrate alpacas.


The first World Scholar’s Cup took place in Korea in 2007: a small regional tournament hosted at the Hankuk Academy of Foreign Studies. The first “global” round followed a few weeks later, bringing together students from Korea, Singapore, and the United States. Now it has grown to reach tens of thousands of students in dozens of countries.

Tournament Format and Subjects:

A team for the World Scholar's Cup is generally composed of three students from the same or different schools. Each team participates in four standard round events: the Scholar's Challenge, Collaborative Writing, The Team Debate, and the Scholar's Bowl.

The World Scholar's Cup curriculum has six subjects that relate to a larger theme. Each year the theme changes, and with it so does the Special Area. The subjects are: Science, Literature, Art & Music, Special Area, History and Social Studies.
