Teachers who have exhibited innovative techniques, inspired students and aroused their curiosity were nominated by students, parents, principals,school boards or by fellow teachers. In a massive and challenging selection exercise, the entries were evaluated by an eminent jury consisting of academicians and experienced teachers, to zero in on the two winners.

"It is our privilege to honour great teachers, to stimulate discussion in the academic fraternity and highlight the value of innovation" said Mr S Ramadorai, CEO and MD of TCS. "The quality of teaching-learning in the classroom determines the creative and innovative thinkers of tomorrow. As an investment for the future, we wish to reward those who are making that happen.
