The contest is organised by British Alumni Society in Poland, in partnership with Oxford University Press, who is also the founder of the main prize – The Best Teacher of English statuette.

THE BEST TEACHER OF ENGLISH AWARD
BAS is initiating an honorary distinction for the outstanding teachers of English in Polish schools, in the form of a statuette awarded to The Best Teacher of English in Poland.
This year’s inaugural Award will go to Mrs Jolanta Okuniewska, the winner of the Second Place in The Global Teacher Award competition in Dubai. Of the eight thousand contestants put forward by various groups and bodies in nearly a hundred and fifty countries, Mrs Okuniewska came second, as the first Pole ever.
The inauguration ceremony of the Award will take place during the Finale of the Debating Season 2016, at the Royal Castle in Warsaw, on the 18th June at 1 PM.
As of September 2016 the award will be decided by a dedicated Chapter, which will publish competition rules, terms and conditions and will receive and consider nominations.
The statuette was designed by Ms Elżbieta Lubomirska.
