Hyderabad, Jul. 21. The Don Bosco Youth Services (DBYS) at BIRDY-Hyderabad, launched online competitions for young people across Andhra Pradesh and Telangana to unravel the world's most complex social and environmental problems during COVID-19. The new youth director, Father B Charan initiated this creative concept with timely help and coordination from the local parish and BIRDY Youth.
He said, 'Their different cultural, social, and geographic insights will enable new solutions and ways of working together, providing a unique model for comprehensive collaboration and problem-solving'. The online competitions are in 02 categories: 1. Singing and Fancy dress for children (10-15) and 2. Singing and Awareness on COVID-19 for Youth (16 Years and above). The competition is remote and will see students forming remote groups of 04-05 to work on an idea for a venture that solves a pressing need for the world over 100 days. The remote competitions began on 09 July 2020 and within a short span, 310 applications have already reached the office. Individual or teams are competing for a chance to win up to Rs 4500 in prize money to develop their ideas further and will participate in the finals on 24 July 2020.

As a preparation, an online youth mass was organized on 19 July by Provincial-Father Thathireddy Vijaya Bhaskar via YouTube. As many as 116 young people participated in the online mass. A short interactive session was held by SIGNIS secretary Father Pappula Sudhakar,
