Beneficiaries of prizes and acknowledgments will be selected from the graduations of the Estonian higher education institutions. For the first time the prize was awarded to the student at the University of Tartu.

Awards received:
Kaido Kaarna - Master's thesis "Building Materials for Fireproofing of Concrete Bricks" at the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Tallinn University of Technology, specializing in Industrial and Civil Engineering.
