    Young Indian students have made the country proud once again by winning around 50% of the design prizes in NASA.

    A Class VII student from Pune deserves special mention as he won the 1st prize.

    Reports said that NASA had received about 600 entries from across 18 countries and Indian students managed to grab 12 prestigious 1st prizes at the NASA Space Settlement Contest competition.

    About three dozen teams from 12th grade and below were sent by India.

    The 7th grader, who won the prize is named Chaitanya Vashistha and he is a student of Pune?s Wadgaonsheri's St. Arnold Central school.

    "It's a matter of great delight and brings a lot of pride to us as it was a competition organized by such a eminent and recognized research center NASA," said his father.

    "This space research has motivated the students to hope that some day they will go and settle and explore in the field of astronomy," said Nalini Sengupta , principal of Vidya valley school, which was among the winners.

    Indian students claimed 15 3rd prizes, including artistic Merit and Literary Merit prize.

    India's mars mission must have primed a widespread interest in NASA's competition.
