Why the Prestige Education Awards?

The state of a nation education is the reflection of the nation’s future. Education is critical in ensuring any nation’s success. From cradle to middle age the quest for education far outweighs the cost implication associated with it. With the spate of research and emergence of diverse kinds of educational institutions this sector engages and serves as the spine of the economy directly or indirectly.  Unfortunately, our system is not fully providing the education students need to unleash their creative instincts, thus the nation is forced to address economic and social consequences. Recent studies indicate that a poor education can lead to a steep increase in criminal behavior, and the expense of incarcerating an individual greatly outweighs the cost of providing an education for the same person.

 

 The educational system is the bedrock of our economy and a salient industry servicing every sector. The prestige awards is a call for us to treasure, bestow honor and recognition to bring about vibrancy, advancement and a spirit of competition to our educational system by recognizing and rewarding those doing well in and for this sector. This will make them happy, content and motivated and also encourage others. When people are recognized for their efforts, they will also continue in their desire to excel and do more.
