The first Sunday of June is the day of teachers. Teachers’ Day has been celebrated in Hungary since the 1950s. Usually this is day when prizes related to education and pedagogy are awarded.

This year, on June 3, prizes for teachers, such as the József Eötvös, János Apáczai Csere, Albert Szent-Györgyi, Teréz Brunszvik and László Németh Prizes were awarded by Miklós Kásler, Minister of Human Resources and Zoltán Maruzsa, Deputy State Secretary for Education.

Our Institute would like to express its respect for teachers who are the most important actors of the survival of our mother tongue within and beyond the borders of Hungary. Regardless of their subject, teachers are all involved the education of the mother tongue and their use of the Hungarian language set an example for their students.
