In the year 2020, the world witnessed massive academic disruption because of the school/college closures caused due to the COVID-19 induced lockdown. Students were forced to stay indoors and it took some time for the world to come to terms with the digital delivery of education. India was no different and was affected more because of the digital divide that separates the haves from the have nots.
However, students and teachers quickly adapted to the changed circumstances and online education became the new normal. During this period, some stories stood out more conspicuously than others and became an inspiration for the rest of us. These were of the educators and students who braved immense odds (like lack of access to basic resources, unfavorable family circumstances, digital divide and lack of access to governmental/institutional support) to set exemplary standards of excellence in education.
These awards are therefore being organised to felicitate and honour these very Students and Educators who went the extra mile to set a personal example of dedication and innovation in the face of adverse circumstances.
JagranJosh Education Awards are decided by pan-India votes and a prestigious jury’s decision. Winning these awards means being part of a select league of students and educators of high calibre & repute.
