At the end of this training, the best performing student is given the coveted "Nawang Trophy". 

This trophy has been established by Nawang's battalion 4/3 Gorkha Rifles in memory of their officer. Col. PP Singh who is the Commanding Officer of the battalion along with the other officers in the battalion presented this trophy to Col John De Britto, the Commandant of the School. Co-incidentally, Col. Britto was the Commanding Officer for Nawang's battalion during his training at the Officers Training Academy in Chennai.

The Trophy is keenly contested amongst the cadets and highly coveted.

We hope that other soldiers starting their tenure in the valley will be inspired by the sacrifice of their brother officers.
