The search for 2018 Maltina Teacher of the Year (MTOTY) has gathered increased momentum as more teachers across the country have been taking advantage of the opportunity by visiting the MTOTY website to submit their entries ahead of July 2nd, 2018 deadline.
Organisers of the MTOTY and various stakeholders in the nation’s education sector had, at the flag-off of the event last month, encouraged teachers in both public and private secondary schools to participate in the innovative award aimed at rewarding teachers and the teaching profession in the country.
Mr. Kufre Ekanem, Corporate Affairs Adviser of Nigerian Breweries Plc. enjoined interested teachers to download application forms from the Maltina website – www.maltina-nigeria.com – before the July 2 deadline. According to him, 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.
