History of the Education Excellence Awards

In 1994, MASB decided that Michigan's school districts needed help creating public awareness of the great things happening in classrooms across the state. Central to this goal was the desire to provide a vehicle for telling the good news and for strengthening confidence in public education.

In 2000, MASB invited SET SEG School Insurance Specialists to partner in celebrating school excellence. With SET SEG's exclusive sponsorship and generous financial support, MASB has significantly enhanced the annual Education Excellence Awards Program

The Education Excellence Award program recognizes original, innovative programs in various categories that positively affect student achievement in local and intermediate school districts.

In the searchable directory below are brief descriptions and contact persons for all of the winners of MASB's Education Excellence Award program since 1994. You can search by region, program category or level for exemplary programs serving kids throughout Michigan—a great tool for curriculum directors, principals and school improvement committees. We hope you will join us in saluting these outstanding educators.
