The Gorur Foundation has instituted the award.
Presenting the award, the former Minister, Haranahalli Ramaswamy, lamented the lack of interest among today's youth in Kannada language and literature.
"The present generation does not give importance to Kannada and most of the youth do not read Kannada books and newspapers,'' he said.
Most countries promoted their native language and for all communication and literature, the local language was used.
But here it was not so. More importance was given to English. Parents should inculcate in their children love for their mother tongue, he said.
Mr. Ramaswamy described Mr. Javare Gowda as a man of great knowledge but who was very humble. Simplicity was one of his virtues.
He always strived for the betterment of others, even during his tenure as the Vice-Chancellor of Mysore University.
"He is Karnataka's pride,'' he added.
K. Chennabasappa, writer, Nagendra Prasad, President of Digambar Jain Yuvaka Sangha, and S. Rangaswamy of Gorur Foundation were present.
