Cornelius Elementary School students who were first-place winners in this year’s India Project competition for elementary schools will be recognized and awarded prizes at the Festival of India at Belk Theater Sept. 14-15. Their projects will be on display.

In the competition, sponsored by the Charlotte India Association, students built 3-D products to showcase aspects of life and culture in India. Two of them are shown here – “Taj Mahal” and “Indian Elephant.”

The Taj Mahal, one of the eight wonders of the world, was built by Mughal Emperor Shan Jahan in memory of his wife. The elephant is a sacred animal in India, a vehicle for kings.

Students who worked on either or both of the projects: Taylor Blitstein, Ayush Bodhale, Jackson Carlock, Maria Carnahan, Melanie Carnahan, Sophia Deal, Kate Fread, Joe Griffith, Emily Guery, Hugh Hoffman, Joseph Kaseman, Garson Long, John Polek, Fiona Reed, Vaidehi Vaidehi, Sydney Vance, Lexi Whiteside, Nina Whiteside and Logan Yates.
