Neeuro to Officially Crown the Winners of the First Neeuro Brainiest Kid Competition India

Business Wire India
Neeuro launched the 'Brainiest Kid Competition India', its first-ever cognitive skills online competition last October 2019. As a leader in the Digital Mental Health and Brain Fitness platform, Neeuro has established a reputation of advocating brain training solutions all over the world. To reinforce the importance of brain training in India [1], Neeuro invited students between the ages of 6 to 17-year-old to participate in the competition.



Improving Children's Cognitive Abilities


According to Harvard Health Publishing, cognitive functions are key ingredients to life-time performance [2]. Furthermore, a study from the Economic Times of India suggests that high cognitive ability is correlated by 84% with higher job performance [3]. In fact, it is the most accurate predictor of an employee’s success at work.

 

A game from Neeuro’s Memorie App called Multitask Master was used in the competition [4]. Primarily, the game is designed to help enhance players' mental flexibility and their rate of processing information. By letting students play Multitask Master, Neeuro aimed to show how cognitive flexibility can make them more productive. Attention, memory, decision making, spatial ability, and cognitive flexibility are some of the key cognitive skills that need to be developed for children to do well, not only in school, but also in life.


An Overwhelming Participation for the Brainiest Kid



Close to four-thousand (4000) registered students from more than 24 Indian schools participated in the Brainiest Kid India Competition 2019. As the demand increased after the said launch, the competition period ran for an extended period. From the 45-day initial run, the Brainiest Kid was extended to 118 days (October 3, 2019, to January 31, 2020).

 

Neeuro's Value-Added Partners (VAPs), Pragati Brain Power, Spini, SMA Abacus, Ignite Genius Minds, Aguray Consultancy Services and Plaudit Minds showed their support for the success of this pilot competition.

 

Neeuro will officially be awarding the schools with the “Brainiest School” award (School with the highest combined score of all their students), while the students in each category (Lower-Primary, Upper-Primary, and Secondary) will be awarded the "Brainiest Grandmaster" awards, respectively. The team at Neeuro congratulates the Brainiest Kid Competition India winners listed below:

 “We are happy to inform that students of Daffodils English School were bestowed with the opportunity to take part in the ‘Neeuro's Brainiest Kid Competition’. This competition gave them a chance to learn and understand the significance of cognitive flexibility.”

- Mrs. Madhuri Chengappa, Secretary, Daffodils English School

 

Technologically-advanced and Forward-thinking Schools are the Future of Indian Education

Neeuro extends its gratitude to all the schools, students, and partners who have enthusiastically participated in this competition. The schools demonstrated their forward-thinking approach and technological inclination as they experienced and realised the positive impact technology can have on students. The schools’ participation and their commendations are a testimonial of their experience.

 

In the coming days, Neeuro will be reaching out to the respective schools to award the winners. Following the successful run of the Brainiest Kid Competition India in 2019, the dates for 2020 will be announced on Neeuro's website this year.
