Said Dr Chitra Rajaram, Editor of Tamil Murasu, "With the increasing emphasis and importance on second languages in our education system, it is timely to give due recognition to these Tamil teachers for their efforts in developing innovative ways to bring across the Tamil language and its rich culture to the students.We also acknowledge the important role of these teachers in creating an enriching and stimulating environment for the students and hence, by bringing them to the forefront, we want to encourage an even greater appreciation of the language."
All Primary, Secondary and Junior College students were eligible to participate and nominations submitted had to be supported with a short write-up on the teacher of their choice. Over 350 entries were received this year.
