The award received around 500 entries from all over India and some applications from Indian schools abroad as well. Eminent personalities from the fields of business, education, media and entertainment adjudged the participants.
Infosys Chairman and Chief Mentor N R Narayana Murthy, that he told the finalists as he posed for a photograph with them: 'Each one of you is here because you are outstanding in your respective field -- be it art, social work, demonstration of bravery to save others, sports, science or innovation.
