Organizers of the Maltina Teacher of the Year initiative have announced the extension of the deadline for submission of entries for the innovative award to Friday, 22nd July, 2016.

This announcement is coming on the heels of appeals by secondary school teachers across the country for more time to enable them file their entries for the coveted prize worth over N50 million.

Disclosing news of the extension in Lagos, Mr Kufre Ekanem, Corporate Affairs Adviser of Nigerian Breweries Plc stated that entries have been received from teachers in 34 States and the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.

“We have extended deadline for the submission of entries for Maltina Teacher of the Year because of the overwhelming appeal by teachers across the country who pleaded for the extension. This initiative is for teachers, we believe it is just fair for us to take their interest into consideration. As a company, we always listen and take the view of the people into consideration in our decision making process,” he said.

Interested teachers are advised to download application forms from the Maltina website – Applications forms should be completed and uploaded to the website or sent by email to [email protected] or post to P.M.B. 12632, Marina, Lagos.

Nigerian Breweries Plc has extended the scope of this year’s edition of the Maltina Teacher of-the Year initiative to include privately- owned secondary schools in the country. In the maiden edition last year, the competition was limited to teachers in the nation’s public secondary schools.

The initiative is to reward commitment and diligence to duty by exceptional teachers across the country. It is done on the platform of Nigerian Breweries- Felix Ohiwerei Education Trust.

As was the case in 2015, Ekanem disclosed that all eligible applications will be subjected to an intense selection and judging process.
