Receiving a prize for reciting Quraan

Q: At the hifz madrasah I go to, we have exams where the students have to read Quraan and will get a mark based on tajweed, etc. Depending on what mark the students achieved, they will get a prize. Is such a type of prize halaal?

A: Yes.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
