Award program like this create competitions among students which encourage them to learn, a student who get the first prize, will try to maintain the position whiles other students will also try to make a name in the award program.

This award program should be practice in the public schools to help unlock students potentials.

Students are driven to act for extrinsic reasons when they anticipate a tangible payoff (e.g., stickers, awards, grades, recognition of others). In effect, the action of learning only becomes a 'means to an end'. By contrast, students who are intrinsically motivated, tend to engage in learning for it's own sake.

The reward resides in the action of learning itself. Mastery rather than a performance outcome is the key here. There is no doubt that both educators and parents want our children to develop a love for learning and to be intrinsically motivated.
