हर वर्ष #TeachersDay पर देश के शिक्षक को उनके अच्छे योगदान के लिए #NationalAward से सम्मानित किया जाता है. इस वर्ष शिक्षक खुद अपनी एप्लीकेशन भर कर दे सकते है. हर जिल्ला से 3 शिक्षक का चयन होगा, फिर हर राज्य से 6 शिक्षक का चयन होगा.इसके बाद नेशनल जूरी इनमे से 50 शिक्षक चयन करेगी

“In the new system, government school teachers or principals can nominate themselves online. Three teachers will be selected from every district and ultimately six teachers will be selected from every state. An independent jury at national level will select 50 outstanding teachers/ heads of schools for the National Award. Teachers can also upload the videos of their work done,” Javadekar told reporters here.
The jury will select the best teachers for the award on the basis of their style of teachings and innovations and revolutionary changes in education system.
