Thank you for your interest in the Educating Excellence program. The Educating Excellence award is sponsored by Lexmark to recognize outstanding Kansas City-area and Central Kentucky K-12 educators in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math.

We encourage you to nominate a deserving educator who is making a difference in the lives of his or her students. In order to be eligible, a teacher must receive two separate nominations—from a colleague, a member of the community or a current student. Entries are accepted year-round and once both are submitted, the nomination will stay active and the teacher remains eligible for the award for up to one year.

If you have any questions about the Educating Excellence program, please refer to our FAQs or send an e-mail directly to the Educating Excellence committee.
