IGSC in search of talents since 1993
How it benefits the child
IGSC Scholarship Examination improves the general knowledge of school children and trains them in the lifelong process of acquiring and updating it. It familiarizes them with the basic tenets of various future competitive exams like medical and engineering entrance, Indian Civil Service, Bank Recruitment, Defense Service etc. It gives them the necessary exposure to various types of intelligence and aptitude tests and tests of creativity and E.Q. It creates environmental concern and ecological insight in school children.

World Thinking Day, formerly Thinking Day, is celebrated annually on February 22 by all Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. It is also celebrated by Scout and Guide organizations and some boy-oriented associations around the world. It is a day when they think about the their "sisters" (and "brothers") in all the countries of the world, the meaning of Guiding, and its global impact.
Most recently, World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts has selected an important international issue as the theme for each year's World Thinking Day, and selected a focus country from each of their five world regions. Girl Guides and Girl Scouts use these as an opportunity to study and appreciate other countries and cultures, and equally increase awareness and sensitivity on global concerns. Donations are collected for the Thinking Day Fund which supports projects to help Girl Guides and Scouts around the world.
February 22 was chosen as it was the birthday of Scouting and Guiding founder Robert Baden-Powell and of Olave Baden-Powell, his wife and World Chief Guide. Other Scouts celebrate it as B.-P. Day or Founders' Day.
At the local level, the event is sometimes held to the closer week end or another convenient date.
