They will be honoured by President Pratibha Patil at a ceremony in the Rashtrapati Bhawan on June 10. The scheme is awarded to children, within the age group of nine to 16, in four creative areas--art, performance, scientific innovations and writing. The scheme, started in 1995, aims to identify, nurture and honour children for their creativity, spread awareness about creativity as a personality development trait among teachers, parents and the community and provide opportunities for research work on creativity.
