Former Greek Minister of Education, Mrs. Anna Diamantopoulou, hailed the 7th
Annual Education Leaders Awards Gala Athens, Greece on Friday, June 3rd,
attended by representatives from every academic and educational sector in
Mrs Diamantopoulou stated: "Tonight, is an evening, a festival, a celebration for
education in our country. No country in the world can be highly developed and
achieve a high level of democracy without a high level of education.
The awards are not simply an approach to excellence; they are much more; they
highlight the country's resources and the establishment of standards.
Teachers of all levels, from primary schools, high schools, lyceums, experimental
schools, universities, different universities in the country, overseas Greeks, the
private sector, and even an architect within the committee who deals with
school aesthetics and infrastructure!
Each proposal is assessed and graded by four different evaluators to reach the
final grade and result in an indisputable selection of the best submissions."
The highest honor of the evening went to Ellin-opoula with the Platinum Award

"We all believe that the Greek language and Hellenism are very important for
young children of the diaspora to learn, especially today. Hellenism gives them
solid values and it forms their character and their identity and gives them strong
roots to face the many conflicts of life.
Our fantastic team of talented young people in Greece shares the same love and
give their hearts to everything they do and develop for Ellinopoula.
I would like to thank Mrs. Diamantopoulou and the Education Leaders Awards

Year, and for awarding us in several other categories for the 3rd year in a row. It
is a great honor for us. Our mission continues, to advance Greek language and
