By Ha Man-joo, India correspondent, AsiaToday - An Indian student winner of Korea quiz is born.

Ashwini Gurung, a student from the Convent of Jesus and Mary School, won the second place.


The top four winners will undertake a six-day trip to Seoul to experience Korean culture. Besides, a 'Korea Visit program' will be conducted for those students who missed the chance to visit Korea in the quiz.

Through this program, nearly 1,000 Indian students will have an opportunity to visit Korea to experience Korean culture, such as learning Taekwondo, and making kimchi and hanji, and go on a field trip to Korea's developed industry scenes including Samsung Electronics."


The final round f the competition began in front of audience of 600 teachers, students, and parents from the participating schools, as well as reporters from Indian local media outlets.


A staggering 12,492 students from 50 schools in Delhi NCR took part in various levels of the competition. The event was the largest international quiz show in the NCR region.
