HEB – Surprise Principal and Teacher Finalists for 2020 Excellence in Education Awards with Cash Prizes

This week, the rest of Texas will learn what students in North Texas area schools already know – that their educators are among the best in the state.

A group of H-E-B representatives carrying gifts including flowers and cookies will surprise teachers and principals with news that they are finalists for the 2020 H-E-B Excellence in Education Awards, one of the largest monetary awards program for educators in Texas and the nation.

Teachers will be surprised in their classroom and presented with a $1,000 check for themselves and a $1,000 check for their school. Principal finalists will be presented with $1,000 check for themselves and $2,500 check for their school before a surprise pep-rally style student assembly.

All finalists will be invited to compete against other educators for the chance to win greater cash prizes ranging from $5,000 to $25,000. Overall statewide winners will be announced in May. Over the next two months, H-E-B is surprising a total of 40 finalists across the state and awarding $95,000 to educators and schools.
