WondrYears launched Scratch Coding Contest on the 21st of April on its Instagram and Facebook pages (Wondr_Years).
We got a lot of entries and in-fact we had to extend the last date of the contest to accommodate all the entries. Skillovate Learning collaborated with us on this contest and their founder Satyam Baranwal graciously agreed to judge the contest for WondrYears
We had one winner each for the age category 8-11 and 12-15 and believe me it was one tough decision to make in each category
Let’s meet our winners

Let’s see what the judges have to say about Aahaan’s creation
“Aahaan made an Animation Story . He made use of different characters as well as a backdrop. The best and most original thing was he recorded his own voice as a narrator. It was the most original coding creation.”
