SKGKO - Smart Kid General Knowledge Olympiad

The Smart Kid General Knowledge Olympiad, sponsored by the SilverZone Foundation, is an excellent way to ensure a student’s personal and academic advancement (in fields such as history, geography, general science, current events, and sports, among others).

The Olympiad is held on a national and international level every year. SKGKO is certain to broaden a student’s perspective on current and past events, allowing them to view and analyse a situation more clearly than they could otherwise. Students in Classes I to X who are enrolled in CBSE, ICSE, ICBSE, or any other recognised state board in India can participate in SKGKO. We will discuss more on the SKGKO Exam 2022-2023 in this article.
