The Young Buddhist Quiz 2013

On Saturday, 31 August, nine teams of teenagers aged 13 to 16 from five Dhamma schools came together to participate in a friendly competition – the “Young Buddhist Quiz” at Nalanda Centre. The 36 students were representing Bandar Utama Buddhist Society Sunday Dhamma School, BMSM Samadhi Vihara, Kinrara Metta Buddhist Society Sunday Dhamma School, Nalanda Dharma School, and Shah Alam Buddhist Society Sunday Dhamma School.

There was good cheer and all-round fellowship from the Preliminary Round through to the Final Round of the Quiz, as the audience warmly showed their encouragement and enthusiastic support for all participants. Congratulations to “Team Ananda” from the Shah Alam Buddhist Society Sunday Dhamma School, who emerged as the Quiz Champion!

Vigorous competition between the finalists from Bandar Utama Buddhist Society Sunday Dhamma School and Shah Alam Buddhist Society Sunday Dhamma School.

But ultimately, it was a victory for everyone as the inspiring teenagers demonstrated their good grasp of Dhamma knowledge. Sincere thanks to the teachers from the participating Dhamma schools, parents, and participants for coming together so whole-heartedly in this most memorable “Young Buddhist Quiz”. We would also like to express our appreciation to everyone who has contributed to this inaugural event, especially Nalanda Institute Malaysia officers who were the programme organisers. Sadhu anumodana!
