Riveting television episodes and well collated animal research is what strikes us when we hear of National Geographic Channel, but least did we think of interning with them. Anurag Dutta (2006A7PS010) a third year Computer Science Engineering student of BITS, Pilani has won a two month internship at National Geographic, Hong Kong this summer. He achieved this when he was declared the 1st runner up in the prestigious Habitat Young Visionary Award (HYVA).
For the HYVA 2009, participants were to submit an essay in 1500-2000 words on Indias Youth Energy Power and Potential- Your Vision before 15 December 2008. Instituted as an annual award in 2004 the HYVA appeals to the young voice that articulates and impacts the mainstream of natural and societal consciousness for the creation of natural environment where excellence prospers.
