National Youth Festival was born in 1995 and is celebrated every year in any 1 state of India.  This festival is conducted by the Government of India with the help of Nehru Yuva Kendra Sangathan (NYKS) and National Service Scheme (NSS). In India, we celebrate the 12th of January as the National Youth Day which is the birthday of Swami Vivekananda and the week that follows this auspicious day is the week of National Youth Festival.

National Youth Festival:

Swami Vivekananda is an inspiration to all the youths of India to become as daring, brave, patriotic, and leader-like as him and this week of National Youth Festival aims to do the same. This week long festival is organized by the ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports. Youths from all over India are urged to take part in this festival to keep the torch of National integration burning. Communal harmonies, spirit of adventure, mutual brotherhood are the main objectives of celebrating this youth festival.

A bunch of talented and responsible officers are appointed to conduct all the activities of the festival smoothly and efficiently. Youths get an opportunity to display their talents during this festival. These talented youths also have to gear up to participate in the competitive events on the national level. All the events are not necessarily competitive, but the competitive events are a challenge to the participants as the winners are awarded with medals and trophies.

Many cultural events are also a part of this National Youth Festival. Youths are urged to participate in a wide range of competitions like martial arts, intellectual debates and quiz programmes. Art camps, adventurous sport programmes, dance competitions, music bonanzas are some of the many activities. Every year more innovative ideas and competitions are added to make the festival more interesting and exciting.
