HH paid tribute to the educational community for supporting the award to evolve into an international programme for distinguished education based on three pillars: educational excellence; mentoring talented persons and educational innovation.

Organisers said 275 applicants won in this year's edition, a slight increase of 2 percent over the previous edition, representing 66 percent of the total contestants with an increase of 16 percent as compared to previous entries.
