A ceremony to award the best achievers from public preparatory 12th grade students was held at Radisson Blu Hotel here in Addis Ababa, yesterday, May 12, 2017. Initiated by All Mart Supermarket, the project was undertaken in collaboration with St. Mary's University. Our Testing Center took up the challenging task of screening the best ten achievers in a two-round examination. While more than 6500 students from twenty preparatory schools were expected to sit for the first round, a little over 3000 students showed up to take the examination. Of these, the Testing Center identified a hundred top scorers, who were to take the final examination, which would determine the top ten students.

 

At the ceremony, organized by All Mart and supported by sponsors in the business and industry, students received monetary rewards from the organizers and sponsors. Giving short remarks at the beginning of the ceremony, as was the case with All Mart and the Education Bureau representative, the EVP, SMU, jointly with the representative from the Addis Ababa Education Bureau, handed over the rewards to the top three students, while the remaining seven were awarded by other sponsors of the project.
