Since 2010, the OnPoint Prize for Excellence in Education has celebrated local teachers and schools making an impact in the community.
This year, our top awards are:
- Community Builder School Award – Four schools will win $1,000 for a project of their choice.
- Educator of the Year – Two winners: one each from grades K-8 and 9-12. Winners will have their mortgages paid for one school year and receive a $2,500 donation for their schools.
