It informed that registration for participation from schools would begin from September 3 on Fit India website https://fitindia.gov.in.  

The objective of the quiz was to provide a national platform for students to showcase their knowledge about fitness and sports and endeavours in its philosophy to create awareness among students about India’s rich sporting history including centuries-old indigenous sports as well as the national and regional sporting heroes of the past and how traditional Indian lifestyle activities hold the key to a fit life for all.

The preliminary round, a multiple-choice online round, would be conducted by the national testing agency (India’s premiere examination body that conducts national-level exams such as JEE and NEET). The country-wide quiz would be organised in 13 languages for benefit of students studying in regional-medium schools.

The state round would be conducted by each state/ union territory with the support from FIT India Mission from among the schools qualified after the preliminary round. This round would be anchored by a professional quiz master and be telecast on Fit India Mission social media handles.

The national round would be the final in which the winning team of each state/ union territory would participate and fight for the top title of the national winner of Fit India Quiz 2022. First runner-up and second runner-up prizes would also be decided.
