Brainiac 2009 - Chennai goes quizzing

"You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives."
Clay P. Bedford

Chennai Business School (CBS) an institution dedicated to creating ‘industry-ready’ managerial talent, is conducting BRAINIAC 2009, an intercollegiate quiz competition, which is aimed at undergraduate students across several pre-selected colleges in Chennai.

The format comprises a grueling and highly competitive preliminary round, which tests participants on business trivia, general knowledge and events/happenings. The winning teams from the preliminary rounds, one team per college, will be in for an exciting and thrilling Grand Finale, which will be held tomorrow at the Chinmaya Heritage Centre in Nungambakkam.

What's a great quiz without a great quizmaster?

Quizmaster Giri “Pick-Brain” Balasubramaniam, who is very well- known among both the quizzing aficionados and the audiences for his sharp acumen and keen wit, will conduct the final event.

The winning team in the finals will receive an attractive cash prize of Rs 50,000. The two runners-up teams will receive cash prizes of Rs 20,000 each.

If the action in the prelims is anything to go by, the Grand Finale will be one of the most exciting quiz events in Chennai!
