IAGB Invites Nominations For Youth Excellence Awards

Press Release
07/05/2018

Inviting nominations for Youth Excellence Award, entries for talent show and exhibitors at India Day Festival on August 19, 2018 
Boston, Massachusetts

IAGB (India Association of Greater Boston) continues to drive the planning and energy around the upcoming India Day celebration on August 19th at the Boston City Hall Plaza. IAGB has been a pioneer of this celebration in the New England area and it continues to be one of the biggest and most sought-after events. 

Several cities including New York and Chicago have maintained the tradition of celebrating India Day festivals and IAGB is doing its bit to keep the torch alive in the greater Boston area. Aditi Taylor, IAGB President, said, ‘All celebrations of India pride are exciting events for us. But what makes this more special is the opportunity to showcase the strength of the growing IndianAmerican diaspora in our adopted land. So, I strongly urge my fellow community members to join the celebration and show their solidarity to the community.  

What’s even more exciting about the celebration this year is the sprawling open venue with easy access to transportation and local Boston attractions. Moreover, in addition to the traditional cultural performances, there will be a ‘talent show’ section to showcase varied talents (e.g., art, magic, theater, etc.). There are still open spots for the talent show and entry submission will close on July 15, 2018. There will also be a series of field games which include fun games like lemonspoon race, three-legged race to more innovative games for all ages to participate in. Entries for field games will be taken on the spot. 

Surrounding the activity will be the vibrant exhibition booths from various corners of our community. Contact us soon to reserve your spot. Early bird pricing is extended to July 7, 2018.  

Also, IAGB will be presenting merit-based Community Youth Excellence Awards at India Day Festival to Indian-American students for the fourth year in a row. Eligible nominees must be rising junior or senior high school students of Indian origin, who reside and attend school in New England Area. Please visit www.iagb.org for nomination criteria and additional details. Last date for submitting the nominations is July 31st, 2018.

Details of the event, sponsorship, advertising and exhibition are available on www.iagb.org and via email at iagb@iagb.org.
