Why these awards?

JagranJosh Education Awards were conceptualized in the midst of COVID-19 induced lockdown during which time, the Educational leaders, Teachers and Students went beyond the mile to prove the famous quote by Nelson Mandela - Education is the most powerful weapon to change the world.

Seasons 1 and 2 of the Awards celebrated these very key stakeholders in the education ecosystem who were unstoppable despite the Pandemic and quickly adapted to the New Normal and created stories of courage and change in the face of adversity.

In Season 3, we take forward this legacy and celebrate ‘Best of the Best’ who continue to raise the bar of excellence in education through their untiring efforts and innovative approach.

Above all, these awards celebrate the spirit of those change makers who go the extra mile to create stories that inspire the future generations.
