The convener of the event, Mr. Steven Akpos, in his brief opening remark started that some criteria were put to consideration in selecting the awardees. In his words, ''these are men and women who have paid their dues in their respective fields. Behind the fame lies the pain.''

Their counterpart from a sister school, African Model College, Master Adegbamigbe Olamide, emerged overall best with an outstanding performance in mathematics in his own category.

Though some of the awardees did not come in person, they had their awards picked by their representatives.
