Mumbai : Zee Entertainment’s Mind Wars, India’s biggest knowledge platform for school students, has been awarded two CMO Asia Awards 2021 for Mind Wars Olympiad in the Best PR Campaign and Best Integrated Digital Strategy of the year categories. The announcements were made at the CMO Asia Awards ceremony on Oct 6th, 2021 at Taj Lands End, Mumbai.
Mind Wars Olympiad, launched in 2020 was an online quiz program that allowed registered participants to play for national recognition in the GK Olympiad – consisting of relevant and interesting general awareness questions which focused on improving students’ awareness levels and improve students’ ability to crack competitive tests.
Mind War’s cohesive integrated digital strategy and its PR campaign helped in enabling great participation from multiple schools across the country. Thousands of students every day participated in our app to compete and win against their peers. With lockdown in effect and no opportunity for physical outreach to students and parents, consistent visibility of the program across platforms enabled mind-boggling online participation from children across India to make Mind Wars Olympiad a sensational hit.
