This year a football tournament was organized at the panchayat level. Like the previous years the panchayat level volley ball and kabadi tournaments were organized at Talabania, Puri.
Youth are a symbol of unbounded energy. If this source of energy is tapped in proper manner they can play a vital role in nation building.

The five day camp was organized at Puri where 95 youth from the district participated. In this camp special emphasis was laid on character building, patriotism, self reliance and improve the functional ability of rural youth.
