About the contest

  • Magic Bus India Foundation in association with Sports Illustrated magazine is inviting people (readers/followers on social media) to spend a day with children in the Magic Bus Programme and to experience what it is like to be on the magical journey from childhood to livelihood.
  • Participants entering the contest will be asked two simple questions: what do they know about Magic Bus and why would they like to spend a day with us? Fill up the form here.
  • The answers are a gateway to the contest. We will shortlist participants based on their answers – fun and wit will definitely attract brownie points! These participants will then get to be a part of a Magic Bus session with our children. Wohoo! A day in the sun.
  • While enjoying the company of children, the participants have to do any one of the following activity:

A1 03  Click a photo           A1 02 Write a blog           A1 04 Make a video

  • But there is time for everything. In order to remain in the game, these entries (photo, blog, video) has to reach us within 48 hours of the visit. Since official posts wouldn’t work that fast, they can either tweet, post their entries on Facebook and tag Magic Bus India Foundation or mail the entries at [email protected].
  • We will review the entries and shortlist three best entries. 
  • These posts will be shared on our Facebook and Twitter handles and the author of the entry that receives maximum likes, shares and comments will be declared the winner! So beg, brag or put your social networking skills in action to get that elusive chance to meet…
  • Tadaaaa! The winner will get a chance to meet (and greet!) PV Sindhu and other sports stars at the Sportsperson of the year Charity Gala hosted by Sports Illustrated magazine. It is paparazzi time!
