Amazon’s Kindle On Campus is an initiative to encourage reading amongst student communities and make it easier to do so through the Kindle app and device.
An interactive session with the Amazon leaders had students asking questions on the program and how they could get involved. The program started with a quiz where several students won Kindle vouchers.
The launch of Amazon Kindle on Campus program took place on 15th September 2015 at LSR at 1pm. The speakers of the session were Meenu Handa who’s the Director, PR of Amazon India; and,
Parthasarathy Madhukar, the head of Kindle For Education, Amazon India.
Ms. Meenu Handa eloquently spoke about Amazon’s leadership principles which had the audience awestruck.
The event was organised by the Placement Cell of LSR and the students were briefed about the program. 7 Kindle Evangelists were selected from LSR who were given Kindle Paper White and Kindle Evangelist kits. These evangelists are to be the face of Kindle on campus.
This is Kindle India’s first program for Undergraduate students. Hence, it becomes a huge step towards integrating College students at root level.
Question and Answer round took place where the winners were gifted Kindle vouchers; and Amazon’s 14 Leadership principles were introduced during the session.
