SAN ANTONIO – H-E-B is currently accepting nominations for educators for the 2023 H-E-B Excellence in Education Awards.
H-E-B first launched its Excellence in Education Awards program alongside the Texas Association of School Administrators in 2002 to make a positive impact on the public education system in Texas.
The Excellence in Education Awards has awarded almost $13 million to benefit Texas public schools, school boards, early childhood facilities, teachers, and principals, over the past 20-plus years, according to a news release.
H-E-B’s Excellence in Education Program’s latest venture, involved the creation of a limited-edition Creamy Creations flavor called “Education Heroes.”
The ice cream sold out in six months, and H-E-B donated $11,091.20 of the proceeds to DonorsChoose to help fulfill classroom wish lists of Texas teachers.
Nominations are open until October 17 and applications are open through December 5. This year’s awards gala will take place on April 30 in the Alamo City.
