In a bid to accommodate more teachers and grant them the opportunity to be part of this year’s teacher award, Nigerian Breweries Plc has extended the deadline for the submission of entries for the 2019 Maltina Teacher of the Year award by two weeks.
The entries, which had a deadline of July 12, can now be submitted until July 26.
According to the company’s Affairs Director, Mrs. Sade Morgan, she stated that the deadline was extended due to calls from teachers for more time.
She stressed that the company had been inundated with so many enquiries and pressure from participating teachers and other well-meaning individuals for the possibility to extend the entry deadline for this year’s edition of the Maltina Teacher of the Year initiative. She equally stated that it had further revealed that the initiative is highly regarded by key stakeholders.
Mrs. Morgan urged primary and secondary school teachers in public and private schools to take advantage of the new window to complete their applications online or download forms to fill offline which can also be submitted by email.
She added that forms could be obtained at various state Ministries of Education, Teacher Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN), Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) or Nigerian Breweries offices nationwide.
Prizes for the overall best in this year’s Maltina Teacher of the Year award include N6.5 million, a capacity training programme, and a block of classrooms at the teacher’s school.
First and second runners-up will get N1 million and N750,000; while each state champion will receive a cash reward of N500,000 each.
