Attended by representatives of state entities, MPs, rectors of higher schools, education workers, and schoolchildren, the event started with the state anthem of Azerbaijan.


Speaking at the ceremony, education minister Jeyhun Bayramov said national leader Heydar Aliyev had always attached great importance to education, emphasizing that President Ilham Aliyev has been decisively implementing the National Leader’s ideas.

Executive Director of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation Anar Alakbarov underscored the contest’s importance. Talking about the directions of activities of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation, one of the co-organizers of the contest, Anar Alakbarov said the Foundation has been going on with national leader Heydar Aliyev’s ideas, implementing large-scale projects serving our country’s progress and well-being of the people.


“By projects realized at the initiative and under the leadership of President of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation Mehriban Aliyeva, and by practical works, the Foundation has won the respect and esteem of the whole people of Azerbaijan. At the same time, as the biggest non-government organization of the country, which has won the respect of the world society by humanitarian activities, we have been worthily representing Azerbaijan around the world. The ideas of national leader Heydar Aliyev and serving to these ideas has formed the bedrock of these many-branched activities. Today’s contest testified that the Azerbaijani youth has been showing great interest towards profoundly studying the matchless services of national leader Heydar Aliyev to our people, and the state-building concept, of which author he is. And this shows that Azerbaijan is in reliable hands”, - said Anar Alakbarov.


Anar Alakbarov noted that the Heydar Aliyev Foundation has always shown special attention to education. Construction of new school buildings in even remote villages of the country, and other projects implemented may be shown as an obvious example of the importance Mehriban Aliyeva - the Foundation’s president, the First Vice-president of the Republic of Azerbaijan - attaches to this area.


Speaking at the event, Minister of Transport, Communication and High Technologies Ramin Guluzadeh talked about the life and activities of national leader Heydar Aliyev. The minister noted that Heydar Aliyev - the founder of contemporary Azerbaijan, coming to power at a very difficult time of the history, has done great services to the people, rescuing the country from being torn apart. At the times the National Leader ruled the country, he took significant steps towards Azerbaijan’s advancement, and promoting it throughout the world. Not denying his attention to any area, the National Leader has always approached education with special delicacy. And today, the education in Azerbaijan has been enjoying constant care and attention of President Ilham Aliyev.
