Suzanne Furstner Scholarship 2016

Cactus TEFL Scholarship Winner

Through the Suzanne Furstner Prize Cactus TEFL is giving away a TESOL course in London or a CELTA course in Bogota, Colombia and we have now chosen our TEFL scholarship winner and runner-up! Our entrants were asked to make a short video explaining why they want to become an English language teacher. We received a number of fantastic entries and everyone who entered demonstrated varied and genuine reasons for wanting to become an English teacher. There were a number of inspirational entries which were selected for our top 6 finalists' list.

The Winner

There can only be one winner and the video we chose was from Lauren, from the UK. You can watch Lauren's video here. Lauren will take her competition prize of a free TEFL course in either London or Bogota, Colombia.

We have also chosen one runner-up and that is Kinga from Hungary. Kinga's video can be found here. Kinga will receive a discount on any TEFL course offered by Cactus TEFL and the Cactus TEFL online course.

Congratulations to both our winner and runner-up and thank you to everyone who participated in our competition!
