FeTNA Tamil Theni 2022
Dear STA Parents & Students,
FeTNA’s தமிழ்த்தேனீ 2022 is officially launched now. We received the communication only on Mar 27, 2022 and the timeline to close the school level contestants and registration is fast approaching. School level contestants need to be finalized by Apr 18, 2022. See below table (Tamil Theni 2022 Schedule) for full schedule. Please comprehend the schedule to determine your availability before registration/participation.
To meet this schedule, we’ll use the FeTNA’s quiz app to finalize our school representatives unlike last year with a local school level event. ‘Tamil Theni Quiz’ is a live online event. Students can participate and answer the questions with their audio/voice. FeTNA will conduct these quizzes at the scheduled time for different levels (age groups). All participants will be playing at the same time and top 10 scores will be published in the leaderboard. FeTNA will send the scores to us and we will use those scores to select the final team representing our school for the next round of competition in levels 1-3.

Zoom – There is no Zoom or other video session. This is a LIVE online only Quiz.
Quiz assist – DO NOT assist your children with the answers.
The best student will be representing your school up to the Nationals. Nationals competitions are through Zoom and in-person.
Accuracy – Quiz is driven by Google’s AI for Tamil language. While we have maximized context configuration for this AI, the transcription (speech to text) may have inaccuracies.
Clear pronunciation (minimizing US/English accent) will greatly help with the accuracy.
Alternate answers are coded-in where applicable to accommodate known variations to the answer.
Contact: Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the online quiz.
