India, November 18th, 2021: With schools being shut, students have explored different ways to keep their creative juices flowing and used the available resources to stay engaged, inspired, and motivated. As part of its Children Day initiative, Vedantu- a pioneer in LIVE online learning has partnered with visual communications platform, Canva, to launch a first-of-its-kind Design Challenge in India, with a design bootcamp to educate school students on the essentials of creativity and design thinking. The design bootcamp sessions will be conducted by experts from Canva and Vedantu Master Teachers. With this collaboration, Vedantu aspires to celebrate the creativity, curiosity and exploration of children and teachers across the country.

Since the pandemic, LIVE online learning has seen a massive adoption. Teachers have also gone above and beyond their duty to conduct classes through different mediums available. They have emerged as digital content creators and EdTech professionals who are experts in mentoring students in an online teaching space.


The theme for the first edition of the Design Challenge is #GoingBacktoSchool and is open to all students across the age group of 6-18 years. The challenge will ask r students to create an artwork on Canva that truly resonates with the theme. Students are required to submit a design which focuses on what is so special about #GoingBackToSchool for them, with the templates available on Canva for Education.

The artwork created by students will be judged under three categories -
  • Group 1: Junior School (Grades 2nd- 5th) - students to create a poster or invite
  • Group 2: Middle School (Grades 6th-8th) - students to create an infographic or a newsletter
