Commenting on the new contest, Gaurav Rajput, Director - Marketing, Aviva India, said, "We believe that 'Education is Insurance', and have been launching initiatives that are focused on helping children realize their dreams, whether through insurance products, Aviva Street to School initiative, or scholarships for bright young minds."


He added, “Aviva Young Scholar Hunt is a step in the same direction. Through this initiative, they aim to not only provide kids a platform to showcase their intelligence and creativity, but also want them to aspire for a brighter future.”
