With more than 1,900 applications from educators across Texas, only 25 districts were chosen as Semi-Finalists in January 2024 and advanced to the Regional judging process. Judges included former winners, school administrators, and university and community leaders.

The H-E-B Excellence in Education Awards honor outstanding public school professionals and thank them for their dedication and commitment. Through the program, H-E-B invests in students and their communities, helping inspire others to do the same. Since the program’s inception in 2002, H-E-B has awarded more than $14 million in funding to outstanding Texas teachers, principals, public schools and districts, school counselors, school boards and early childhood centers.

Winners of the Excellence in Education Awards were announced in early May. As a result of being named a Semi-finalist, H-E-B awarded Plano ISD with gift cards worth $1,000. Thank you to H-E-B for your support towards education and educators in Texas!
