The event takes place in the region for the third year in a row as part of cooperation between the Company and the Trust Fund for Future Generations of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia). One hundred best representatives of the teaching sphere received awards of 100 thousand rubles each.

RNG is the main promoter and sponsor of the event. The competition was first held on a hundredth anniversary of the Yakut Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic and was met with great interest on the part of the region’s teaching community. Therefore, it was decided that the competition would be held annually. More than 1,000 teachers have taken part in this event over the three years, and the number of applications keeps growing.

This time, 390 teachers from all 36 municipal formations participated in the competitive selection. The winners were chosen by an independent commission. The experts used such defining criteria as high academic performance of students, personal achievements of the applicants, and the use of modern teaching methods. Besides that, additional evaluation criteria were applied for teachers representing different educational levels, which allowed for ensuring objectivity of the competition. Standards developed by the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) were used to chose the winners.

“I keep saying that teachers hold children’s future in their hands and hence the future of Russia. It is gratifying to know that our large industrial enterprises also take part in enhancing of the teacher’s profession prestige. RNG is a bright example of that.
