The Wenhui Award embodies two important elements of educational innovation. Wen () refers to all facets of civilization and culture, including wisdom, knowledge, moral and ethics, and encompasses the desire for learning and inquiry. Hui () symbolizes the creative and radiant force of education that allows civilization and culture to flourish.

Taken together, the Wenhui Award personifies the power of education in promoting learning and allowing individuals and cultures to innovate and grow.

Emphasizing the capacity of education and the human innovative spirit to address and resolve pressing issues and problems, the UNESCO Asia-Pacific Programme of Educational Innovation for Development (APEID) and the National Commission of the People’s Republic of China for UNESCO established the Wenhui (文晖) Award for Educational Innovation in 2010.
