As the first sign of winter was setting in to the valley of Dehradun, students from various schools were part of the quiz. The auditorium was buzzing before the word go. Quizmaster Pickbrain was at his impressive best with students vying with each other to crack his posers. The top six teams that qualified for the finals were:-
- DOON INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL – Ms. Vanshika Rawat and Ms. Disha Dutta
- DRONA INTL. SCHOOL – Ms. Deepali Purohit and Ms. Ritika
- SAI GRACE ACADEMY – Vaibhav Krishali and Farhat Ali
- SCHOLARS HOME – Ms. Vandana B and Ms. Ridhima
- SUMMER VALLEY SCHOOL – Ms. Vanditta Pujari and Shivanshu Giri
- CAMBRIAN HALL – Ms. Deepika and Ms. Chahak Jain
The final was an out of the world experience for the audience. Teams cracked posers that seemed difficult, with great ease. The wit of the quizmaster stood out as he took the audience with him, cracked timely one liners and crafty retorts to teams that kept all in good stead.
The quiz saw a head to head battle between the team from Summer Valley and Doon International with the former going on a rampage and amassing an unassailable lead very quickly. They ended the quiz with a record score of over a 100. The girls from Doon International too were impressive but had to be content with the runner up title.
The winners make it to the national semi-final to be held at Ooty, early 2017. The winners and runners of the national finale will win international trips for themselves and their teacher. Quizmaster Pickbrain was not surprised with the exceptional performance and said “An educational city like Dehradun would be expected to do well, but the winners have set a benchmark that could well stay unbeaten this year”.
