AFMI’s 2-day International Convention on Education & Gala Award Ceremony kick starts

Farmington (Michigan): American Federation of Muslims of Indian Origin (AFMI) has finalised the list of top ranking Muslim students in India and has planned to felicitate them in December this year. AFMI is awarding meritorious students since last more than 15 years.


"Indian Muslim students continue to break new records in academic achievement. This was revealed in the new list of the American Federation of Muslims of Indian Origin’s top scorers in the standards X and XII board exams from across India", AFMI officials say in a press statement.

AFMI usually selects top five students from across India in each category to be honoured at the main event of its Annual International Convention and Gala Awards Ceremony. But this year the percentages obtained by the students were so close that the organization decided to expand the list of class X students to ten.


"The students will be honoured at the XIX Annual Convention of AFMI in Ahmedabad on Dec. 25-26, 2010", it says.

Another remarkable development is the number of girls among top scorers. Seven out of the ten top scorers are girls in the Standard X category.

Apart from the medals each student will receive a cash award and in the case of need would be considered for further scholarships.

Top three scorers from each state will also get Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals.

"The record breaking scores of India’s Muslim students, year after year, reveal that AFMI’s 19 year old awards program has developed a keen sense for academic excellence in the community", AFMI official observes.


AFMI has especially urged the NRIs to attend its annual convention to encourage the budding scholars.
