As a continuation towards this endeavour, Amul has instituted Vidyashree Award to recognize the academic excellence of the class 10 school topper in the examination in each State/Central Board enrolled school every year.

The objective of the awards is to recognize the efforts of the academic merit toppers and build equity for Amul among the young India. We are proud to constitute this award which is the first of its kind in India and operate Pan-India in such a large scale.

By winning this award, not only the student gets recognized, but it also help the schools to enhance their image as an academy that imparts quality education, putting it at par with other premier institutions in India.
