300 teachers compete for N5m Maltina star prize

300 teachers compete for N5m Maltina star prize

Three hundred teachers are in contention for this year’s Maltina Teacher of the Year award.

Corporate Affairs Adviser, Nigerian Breweries Plc, Mr. Kufre Ekanem, said in a statement that the panel of judges, headed by Prof Pat Utomi have begun screening of the teachers.

The number of entries is nearly double that of last year which was 176.

Ekanem said applications came from all states of the federation and the FCT.

He said the judges have the task of  selecting state champions from the lot among whom they would shortlist the best 10 for further screening. The top three would be selected from among them.

“The valid entries will now be subjected to further scrutiny and thorough assessment process by the panel of judges to pick the state champions. From the state champions, the 10 best entries will thereafter be invited for another round of assessment where the panel will further subject the 10 finalists to rigorous scrutiny in order to determine the Maltina Teacher of the Year for 2017. On October 12, 2017, the winners will be announced and celebrated at a grand event in Lagos,” he said.

The overall best winner will get a total of N5 million spread across five years, training abroad, as well as a block of classrooms for his/her school.

Ekanem said the firm hopes to boost the teaching profession through the award which is one of the programmes funded under the NB/Felix Ohiwerei Education Trust Fund.

“It is our hope that through the Maltina Teacher of the Year initiative, we can inspire this nation to accord our teachers their deserved credit and bring back respect to the teaching profession in Nigeria,” he said.
