The teaching profession is among occupations that require most responsibility because a teacher has a difficult and important task to transmit knowledge. This also means that a teacher has a direct impact on his students’ development and their future.
Today, their goal is to create successful citizens of the world who will be fully prepared to adopt knowledge and skills of the 21st century.
Through this project we wish to encourage and reward teachers who make a difference at their job and achieve outstanding results with their students.
A teacher who is innovative and makes changes, who is a role model and an inspiration to his students and colleagues, the one who encourages intellectual curiosity of his students and engages them in the learning process is a teacher that has a lifelong impact on them.
Each year, between 10 and 20 teachers and professors from elementary and high schools in Serbia will be selected and awarded.
Students, parents, colleagues or anyone else who believes he knows an exceptional teacher can nominate them for “Serbian Teaching Awards“ through the nomination form on our website. The applications are open in the second quarter of the calendar year.
The selection consists of several rounds and the winners announcement and the award ceremony are expected later this year.
All of the selected teachers will be awarded with prize money, most of which can only be spent on teacher-student activities, thereby supporting their work and improving the quality and scope of their activities.
Awarding the best teachers in Serbia means much more than just recognizing the individuals or singling out the best.
Through this project we wish to remind teachers and professors how important their profession and the quality of their work are for the whole society and the future of the country.
By singling out the best teachers, we wish to raise awareness about the core values of teaching and to set an example for others or at least give them something to strive for.
We wish to thank all those teachers who are trying to improve the society we live in, not only by being better people themselves, but also by teaching the future generations true values and being their inspiration for progress.
