In order to celebrate Mother's Day (May 12) with full fervour and gaiety, a 'best dress' competition for all the mothers and talent hunt show for little kids were organised in the community hall of Gaur City 6th Avenue, a high-rise in Greater Noida West, on Friday.
Around 150 participants, including mothers and children, turned up for best dress competition out of which, 50 were nominated for the ramp walk. On the basis of the ramp walk, best three were awarded.
"Participants were selected on the basis of the outfits worn by them. There was no registration fee as we organised these events, keeping in mind that there should be maximum participation," said Anita Prajapati, a resident, and member of the organising team.
In order to engage the target groups, the format of the events was made interesting as participants had to clear three stages to win the applause of the audience and the competition. Besides judging the participants on the basis of their dresses, they were selected based on the self-introduction they gave it on the stage. Apart from this, there was a Quick Question and Quick Answer round in which participants were supposed to answer practical questions in no time! For eg What will you do if you get stuck in the lift? What will you do if your baby gets angry or starts crying suddenly?!
For the talent hunt show, the kids were divided into two groups- between 3 and 5 years, 6 and 10 years. Samika Rana won the first prize in the age group of 3-5 years while Miraya Maan and Abeer Sinha were selected for second and third prize respectively.
In the age group of 6-10 years, Adhya Singhal won the first prize whereas Aastha Gupta and Kanishka Singh bagged the second and third prize respectively.
Richa Bansal was adjudged as the winner for ‘Mothers in Best Dress’ show while Pallavi and Anuradha Singh won second and third prize.
"This is the first time that something of this sort was celebrated in 6th Avenue. As a member of the organising team, I would like to thank all whose presence made the occasion a grand success. I would like to congratulate all those who have been selected as winners. Such events give confidence to mothers as they have all the rights to celebrate their contributions in daily life. The way residents of the society, especially women and little girls showed their interest in these events, it encourages me to do more such thing to make life happier and cheerful,” Anita Prajapati concluded.
