About the Michigan Lottery’s Excellence in Education Award
Each week, the Michigan Lottery showcases well-deserving K-12 teachers and staff who are making a noteworthy impact in the lives of Michigan students.
Selected educators will receive a $500 cash prize, a $500 grant to the educator’s classroom, school or school district and will be featured during a WXYZ broadcast. In addition, all Excellence in Education award winners will be automatically entered into the Michigan Lottery’s “Educator of the Year Award” for a grand prize of $10,000.
