As a segment in Corporative Social Responsibility (CSR) Scheme which aims to bring some changes for the underprivileged and deserving people of Tamil Nadu and to acknowledge them, a program or event was organized to congratulate all the school level academic toppers with an award named Madhulavan Award every year.
Raj TV has been issuing this award since 1999 till date for talent budded people who perform exceedingly well in academics, and this series has a base on issuing the Madhulavan Awards to the toppers of 2015.

Many dignitaries like the union minister of tribal affairs, Minister of state for Agriculture, Madras High Court Judge Justice, Chief Election Commissioner, Higher Education Member Secretaries, etc. were invited.
This award is to recognize and honor the 10th and 12th standard students of Tamil Nadu who don’t have any moral or financial support to get their career going. Sponsors or people interested in guiding the young talent will mold the scholars in the right direction. The District toppers along with their parents are invited to Chennai. Apart from medals, the students are also given a chance to experience the environment and the entire cost required for the trip from the student’s hometown along with his parents is paid by Raj TV networks.
