The Michigan Lottery has established the Excellence in Education Awards to recognize outstanding public school educators across the state.
One outstanding educator will be selected each week during the school year and will receive a $500 cash prize as well as a $500 grant to their classroom, school or school district. One annual winner will be selected from the weekly winners and will receive a $10,000 cash prize.
For this program, the Lottery has teamed up with Michigan State University basketball coach Tom Izzo, who will present each winner with their award. In addition to the $500 cash prize and $500 grant, each winner also will receive a plaque and be featured in a news segment on the Lottery’s media partner stations: WXYZ-TV in Detroit, FOX 17 in Grand Rapids and FOX 47 in Lansing.
