Global teacher prize by Varkey Foundation Varkey Foundation (VF) has established the Prize in 2014 to raise the stature of the teaching profession, so that children will dream of becoming the greatest teacher in the world. They seek to celebrate the best teachers — those who inspire their students and community around them. The Foundation believes that vibrant education awakens and supports the full potential of young people.
The competition is open to currently working teachers who teach children and are in compulsory schooling, or are between the ages of five and eighteen. Teachers who continue to teach, even on a part-time basis are also eligible, as are teachers of online courses. The competition is open to teachers in every kind of school and, subject to local laws, in any country in the world.
Award:- $1 million
