Awards are given in the following categories: In the individual award category, there are five awards: Rising Star, Innovator, Leadership, Educational Excellence and Social Media ambassador Awards. In the company award category, there are three awards: Educational Excellence, Inspirational Culture and Social Impact Awards.
