In his address, Raja said that educational institutions are the nurseries wherein our future workforce is being imparted the necessary skills to handle the challenges that lie ahead.

Raja said the focus of the Ministry is to “Catch Them Young” to inculcate IT knowledge and skills at school level itself.

This, he hoped, would ensure that creativity and innovation are nurtured at a young age and in the long run would lead to the quality levels of graduates and post-graduates coming out of higher educational institutions.

Emphasising the importance of awards, he said they are for giving recognition to the leading schools.

This would motivate the teachers and students of the schools and maintain a healthy competition among the various schools and motivate the management of these schools to provide more incentives to the teachers and students, he added.

The Computer Literacy Excellence Awards Scheme for schools is an attempt to bring the nation’s children at par with young achievers of the world. (ANI)
