The B M Birla Science Centre organizes the Annual Children’s Painting Competition for school children between 6 to 12 years on 5th November every year at the B M Birla Science Centre, Adarsh Nagar, to commemorate the birthday of late Shri B M Birla, the great industrialist and visionary.

About 200 young children from various schools in the twin cities participate in this competition. The students are divided into two groups 6-9 years and 10-12 years respectively.

Topics are given on the spot and watching these little children splash colours and crayons to create images that match the theme, is an experience in itself. The topics vary from each category and three prizes are given in each category apart from a large number of certificates of Merit in each group as evaluated by the judges.
