Post lunch on the 29th, the teams demonstrated their ideas and models to an eminent 6 member jury panel consisting of professors from III-H and Mahindra University, and renowned environmental experts and educationists. The panel decided on the winning teams and prizes were awarded on the same day.

All the teams rose up to the challenge of the short timelines and tough problem statements, coming up with solutions that impressed the jury panel. Based on the innovative ideas, and the feasibility of the models, 2 of the teams have been picked up for further prototyping and mentoring to help develop their products further. Pravaha is working with its partners to make this a reality.
