Campus Report :
American International University - Bangladesh (AIUB)'s Social welfare club "AIUB Shomoy Club" under the guidance of the Office of Students Affairs of the University organized an idea-generation competition to find the best "Innovative Development Efforts and Actions for Sustainability (IDEAS)". In this connection the AIUB Shomoy Club brought together teams of bright minds in the competition from various schools and colleges around the city. Following a buzzing week of registration for participants from multiple fields of study, day-long finale was held on the university premises recently.
Capt (retd) AB Tajul Islam, a Member of the Parliament and the Chairman of the Standing Committee in the Ministry of Liberation War Affairs graced the occasion with his presence as the Chief Guest, together with Bikash Kishore Das, the Additional Secretary of the Statistics and Informatics Division of the Ministry of Planning, who acknowledged the hard work of the talented participants at the competition.
The event also played host to the Vice Chancellor, Dr Carmen Z Lamagna, and the Vice President for Student Affairs, Nadia Anwar, who presided over the opening ceremony together, along with the different faculty deans, directors, department heads, and other administrative officials.
The event showcased the project submissions from around 20 different institutions, comprising of over 125 participants. Each team exhibited and presented their ideas through either handmade posters or model prototypes, addressing a particular social issue, based on some of the 'Social Development Goals (SDGs)' of the United Nations.
A panel of judges evaluated each idea on a number of criteria, ranging from their feasibility to their creative implementation.
The panel held both internal and external judges, including faculty representatives, Farheen Hassan and Dr Tabin Hasan, along with noteworthy guest judges.
The projects were also voted upon by visiting faculty members, students, and administrative officials, which contributed to the final results. After careful considerations, calculations, and comments, the final scores put the winning teams at an intensely close match. The 3rd place was taken by the 'Team Explorer' from Safiuddin Sarker Academy and College for the Project Prototype on Climate Change.
'Team Mobin' from BAF Shaheen College won the 2nd Place for their Project Prototype on Quality Education. But in the end, it was 'Team Quark' from Notre Dame College who truly proved their mettle and won the 1st Place for their Project Prototype on Climate Change.
The Pro-Vice Chancellor awarded the certificates to all the participants and the crests and prize money to the winning teams in the closing ceremony, held at the end of the day in the AIUB Auditorium.
