Would you agree that the experts make a professional competition a success? Experts – this is the word to characterize the jury of “THE FIRST TEACHER” contest. For all these years of the competition history since 2011, the jury was composed and is composed now of prominent specialists of the education system with experience in practical and scientific work, as well as the winners of our contest.
The FIRST TEACHER 2021 competition is currently ongoing. This article was written for the 2020 competition, but the composition of the jury has not changed and, with some updates, I again bring it to the attention of those who are interested in the ANNUAL competition of primary school teachers in rural schools of the Kyrgyz Republic.
Each year, the jury evaluates the essays in the 1st round and the oral competition of teachers in the 2nd round. There are 10-11 members of the jury, and each of them evaluates 40-45 essays in the first round according to 6 criteria, and each essay is evaluated by 7 members of the jury. Those who are familiar with the THE COMPETITION REGULATION (IN KYRGYZ) know that all members of the jury receive the works of participants without names, but only with codes – numbers, and then send a score sheet filled in in Excel to calculate the amount of points, after which the names are disclosed and the result is sent to the participants.
All this work is done by members of the jury on a voluntary basis, without receiving any financial compensation, and at the expense of their personal time. And you know what? Almost always I get the result from all the members of the jury strictly on time or before the appointed date! When they say that people in Kyrgyzstan have a habit of being late, I can only say in response, it depends on who you are dealing with! For example, such busy and popular people as our jury members do not wait for reminders! The work is done clearly, timely, friendly and without pathos.
Last few years, 11 people took part in our jury, four of them are the winners of our competition. I am proud that our education system has such wonderful people – real professionals, competent, energetic, hardworking.
