Since the Nigerian Breweries resumed operation in Nigeria, it has displayed flexibility in human wealth development and volume edifice through its brands in Nigeria.
These acts have also emanated in form of school competitions where teachers and students show the stuff they are made of, which at the end of the day attract profitable significance, empowering families. The company has been organising Annual Media Awards, worth millions to best writes of a chosen topic, to mention but a few.
These competitions have improved the quality of training among teachers in the country thereby refining the standard of education, as it cuts across the different states, improving the standard of living of many families.
The awareness has attracted entries from the 36 states, for 2017 Maltina Teacher of the Year competition, and so NB is set to empower more teachers this year.
The Corporate Affairs Adviser, Nigerian Breweries Plc, Mr. Kufre Ekanem, who disclosed this last week when the panel of judges met to commence assessment of the entries, said that over 300 valid entries were received, compared to 176 received in 2016.
He further said that all 36 states alongside the FCT will be up in battle for the third edition of the Maltina Teacher of the Year, and although hundreds of entries were received, they were shortlisted and endorsed by the stern project evaluators after a meticulous scrutiny ahead of the assessment by the panel of judges.
Ekanem said that 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 which 10 best entries will be invited for another round of assessment where the panel will further subject the 10 finalists to severe scrutiny in order to determine the Maltina Teacher of the Year for 2017.
The panel of Judges, chaired by Prof. Patrick O Utomi also includes other illustrious members of the academia and one of Nigeria’s veteran broadcaster.
The winners will be announced and celebrated at a grand event in Lagos, on October 12, 2017. The Maltina Teacher of the Year 2017 will instantly receive the sum of #1,000,000, plus #1,000,000 every year for the next five years.
The package also includes a progressive training opportunity abroad and a block of classrooms built in the school where the winner teaches. The MTOTY initiative with prizes worth N50 million annually is executed on the platform of NB/Felix Ohiwerei Education Trust Fund.
The Trust Fund which was established in 1994 to contribute to the development of the educational sector in the country, over the years, has used the fund to assist over 20,000 students, built over 250 classrooms and 22 libraries in both primary and secondary schools across 49 communities in the country.
