Berhampur, Odisha, July 16.- World Youth Skills Day is observed every year on July 15. In 2014, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) established the day with the intent to equip youth with the necessary skill sets for employment and entrepreneurship. To celebrate the day, students of the Industrial Training Institute, Berhampur mounted a unique exhibition showcasing vintage bike models made from scrap on Saturday.

Forty models of vintage bikes were designed and fabricated by ITI students during their on-the-job training. The week-long exhibition, to continue July 23, has attracted a large number of visitors despite continuous rain. The theme of the exhibition is Waste To Wealth, said ITI director Dr Rajat Kumar Panigrahy.
