Ostrava teacher wins 17th “Golden Ámos”

The award for the most popular teacher of the year went to an Ostrava educator, Martina Čiková from the Ostrčilová elementary school in Ostrava. The seven finalists for the 2010 “Golden Ámos” were judged by a jury that assessed four fields testing their originality and wit. 44 teachers were nominated by their students for this year’s 17th awards, and had to win several rounds to reach the final contest in Prague. As opposed to previous years, all of the finalists were women. The contestants were welcomed to Prague by First Lady Livia Klaus and will attend a celebratory ball on Saturday evening.
