Today’s event is very important for us, because we believe that those present in this hall and our esteemed laureates standing on the stage are expanding the boundaries of the possible. Expanding the borders of the possible is our biggest mission, and thus in Armenia the mission of expanding the borders of the possible should become a state mission, should become a public mission, should become a people’s mission. Now it is very important that in the eternal struggle between illiteracy and open thinking we achieve the triumph of open thinking as quickly as possible, because, by expanding the boundaries of the possible, we are expanding the borders of our country, the borders of our capabilities, the borders of the vision of the future of our people,” highlighted PM Nikol Pashinyan at the Awards Ceremony.
This year, 47 Armenian students have been awarded with the annual State Educational Award.

The prize is awarded annually to high-performing students and pupils who take an active part in Olympiads and competitions in the field of information technology and natural sciences, have authored scientific papers and articles, and are involved in public programs.
