FOR the fourth year, McDonald’s Malaysia is calling for the submissions of nominations for its Anugerah Guru Inspirasi (Inspiring Teacher Award) as part of the #McDSayangCikgu programme.
The nationwide search is ongoing until March 30.
Malaysians can share stories about how teachers have inspired them or their children to succeed and fulfil their potential, to accomplish more than they thought was possible.
In the lead up to Teachers Day on May 16, the award gives Malaysians an opportunity to shine the spotlight on their inspirational teachers that often go beyond their call of duty.
This award will be given to 25 most inspiring teachers and each will receive RM5,000 in cash, a trophy, a sash and a certificate of recognition at a ceremony organised by their respective schools in conjunction with Teachers Day.
Malaysians who nominate the awarded recipients will also be receiving RM200 worth of McDonald’s gift vouchers.
Since the award was first launched in 2017, over 11,500 submissions have been received with 56 teachers awarded nationwide.
“McDonald’s Malaysia is committed to making sure teachers know they are appreciated and hope to inspire more people to find small ways to make a big difference, ” said McDonald’s Malaysia vice president and chief marketing officer Melati Abdul Hai in a statement.
She added that it has been sharing its appreciation for teachers through giving away free meals on Teachers Day, organising annual motivational seminars to equip them with new skills and host Teachers Day parties at its outlets.
