Press Club Hyderabad has conducted cookery and rangoli competitions for the womenfolk commemorating Sankranti festival in its premises at Somajiguda on Sunday.
Prizes were given away by the managing committee to the winners of first, second and third categories in both rangoli and cookery competitions. In Rangoli, the first prize went to Shyamala Dharmasanam while the 2nd and 3rd were bagged by Pratima and Rama Devi, respectively.
Similarly, in Cookery the first prize was bagged by Uma Mallik and rest by 2 others. The other participants, however, were given consolation prizes. The winners were chosen by a special committee formed with experts from outside the club.
The programme evoked good response with families of the members participating in large numbers. PCH has been conducting such competitions during festivities every year to encourage its family members.
The prizes were distributed by woman members of Managing Committee Yashoda and Gayatri. The judges were also felicitated on the occasion. The other office-bearers who took part in the programme include Hari Prasad, Bhupal Reddy and Vasanth Kumar.
