Children have to collect 40 cuttings of 'Kids Corner', buy any kind of scrap book and creatively design it. One can make stories, events, announcements, spoofs, cartoons, monologues and dialogues, anything with the help of the 40 scraps, and submit the scrapbook at The Free Press Journal office. The entries will be judged on imagination, creativity and command over English.

The Free Press Journal has tied up with nearly 150 schools to receive the entries.

From the educational angle, it aims to inculcate the prudent habit of newspaper reading and to enhance students' knowledge."

Other consolation prizes are sponsored by Knorr Soups-Unilever Group, Big Flix - Reliance Group, Monginis, Essel World and Water Kingdom, and Kores.
