CBSE Teachers Awards 2017-18
The Central Board of Secondary Education announced the 'Teacher Awards' under the sponsorship of MHRD in the year 2000 to give public recognition to the meritorious services of outstanding teachers of schools affiliated to it. Since then, these awards are given every year on Teachers' Day i.e. 5 September. Each award consists of a merit certificate, a shawl and a cash prize of Rs 50,000/-.
In order to honour both outstanding teachers and principals, the board has made certain changes in the criteria, guidelines and procedure of selection for these awards to make them more objective and transparent.
Excellent teachers of various disciplines will be awarded and the number of awards has been increased from 34 to 48.
