Jammu: Encouraging students in J&K to put on their thinking caps, Vodafone J&K circle on Monday organised the ‘Vodafone quiz contest’ for students of Government College for Women, Parade Ground here in the college campus.
The hour-long Vodafone Quiz Contest saw participating students engage in a ‘battle of brains’ to emerge as the smartest amongst their peers, a statement issued by the telecom operator said.
