The competition is held for a fourth consecutive year under the patronage of the rector of Alma mater – Professor Anastas Gerdjikov.

The “student of the year” Alexander Leshev received his award from the rector of the university, who said that the choice was difficult in all categories, but it was the hardest for the jury to decide which student of all nominated is the most worthy of the “student of the year” recognition.

At the awards ceremony Alexander Leshev thanked all his colleagues, lecturers and the organisers of the event.
