Spin A Story is conducted in two stages. First is a quiz round that will be held on 29 August 2021 from 9:30 pm to 10:00 pm. The final and second round is the storytelling competition.
The competition is conducted by dividing all the participants into groups of 4 to 6 members each. Each team is given a theme to narrate a story on. The challenge is to narrate, and build, a story as a team while each member gets to speak one after the other. The catch here, if you felt all this was easy, is that all the speaking is conducted impromptu. The competition will mainly focus on building creativity, presence of mind, and communication.
The following criteria are evaluated for 10 marks each
#1 Content and Theme
#4 Duration/Time Management
#5 Performance as a group
Rewards & Prizes
All participants will be awarded a certificate of participation by IIM Vizag. Finalists in the competition will be awarded a certificate of appreciation. The top three teams will be awarded the cash prize.
Winner: Rs. 4,000
First runner-up: Rs. 2,500
Second runner-up: Rs. 1,500
