The H-E-B Excellence in Education Awards are designed to honor outstanding public school professionals and to thank them for their dedication and commitment. Through this program, H-E-B seeks to pay tribute to those educators who go the extra mile each and every day to serve their students and their communities and who inspire others to do the same.

Since the program’s inception in 2002, H-E-B has awarded almost $13 million in funding to outstanding Texas teachers, principals, public schools and districts, school boards and early childhood facilities.

  • Teacher

  • Principal

  • School District

  • School Board

  • Early Childhood Center

The H-E-B Excellence in Education program awards cash grants to finalists, winners, and their schools. A nomination starts a journey that can lead to impactful benefits for the schools and districts in your community.
