The idea of introducing Principal of the Year Award (POYA) and Teacher of the Year Award (TOYA) was started by the Kenya Secondary School Heads Associated (KESSHA) in the year 2008.

The philosophy behind the award is to acknowledge principals and teachers with outstanding achievements in the field of teaching.
