President Kersti Kaljulaid will award state decorations to 113 people on the eve of the 99th anniversary of the Republic of Estonia to acknowledge their commitments to professional life or society that have helped to make Estonia better.

"Decorations represent acknowledgment of the people of Estonia and our partners in foreign countries and represent recognition of the dedication to their work and loyalty to the principles that modern Estonia relies upon – openness and democracy, knowledge and an entrepreneurial mind, caring and taking notice," wrote President Kaljulaid in the introduction of her resolution.

The President of the Republic will present the decorations on the eve of Independence Day, 23 February, in Theatre NUKU.
