Submission of entries for the eighth edition of the Maltina Teacher of the Year competition has been extended till Friday, August 5, 2022.

Speaking on the decision to extend the deadline, Corporate Affairs Director, Nigerian Breweries Plc, Mrs. Sade Morgan, said the action was to encourage more participation from teachers who have been asking for additional time for submission of their entries.

Morgan noted that the initiative is opened to all secondary school teachers currently teaching in Nigeria, stating that the competition remains an effective intervention programme geared towards improving teachers’ status and the education sector.

She stated that teachers interested in the competition are to log on to www.maltin ateacheroftheyear.com to complete online application. Alternatively, they can download the form and send completed form via email to maltinateacheroftheyear@heineken.com.

Morgan reiterated the commitment of the firm to rewarding teachers, stating that the overall winner of the competition will receive a trophy, total cash prize of N6.5 million and capacity development training, while his/her school receives either a block of classroom or a computer laboratory worth N20 million.

“The first runner-up of the competition will equally receive a trophy and a total sum of N1, 500,000, while the second runner-up receives a trophy and a total sum of N1, 250,000. All state champions will be rewarded with recognition plaques and a cash prize of N500, 000 each,” she said.

The Maltina Teacher of the Year initiative was established in 2015 and funded through the Nigerian Breweries-Felix Ohiwerei Education Trust Fund, which was set up in 1994 to facilitate an active contribution to the development of the education sector in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4.
