Lovely Professional University, Phagwara, and Punjabi University, Patiala, emerged as the first and second runners-up, respectively.

Punjab Youth Development Board Chairman Parminder Singh Goldi said, “Such fairs help in developing a sense of community and cultural bonhomie among students. Besides, these provide a platform for student artistes.”

SP Anand, Special Secretary, Sports and Youth Services, said, “The department conducts district-level open youth fairs in each district for youth aged between 15 and 30 years to encourage them in productive activities.”

“The department also conducts youth leadership camps, inter-state tours, hiking camps and training workshops to facilitate physical and intellectual development of youngsters,” he said.
