Gov. Whitmer launches Outstanding Michigan Students Recognition Initiative during Student Appreciation Week 

Parents, extended family, teachers, staff, and coaches encouraged to nominate outstanding students

LANSING, Mich. — Governor Gretchen Whitmer is seeking nominations from parents, extended family, teachers, staff, or coaches for Outstanding Michigan Students in celebration of Student Appreciation Week. They can be current students of any age who have shown exceptional skills, leadership abilities or passionate community involvement. Outstanding Michigan students will be recognized by Governor Whitmer. Nominations will be accepted until Sunday, May 1.

“Michigan is home to many talented and hardworking students of all ages, and I’m excited to recognize their contributions and accomplishments to our great state,” Whitmer said. “Whether it’s a third grader spearheading a playground cleanup, a high school senior graduating with high honors, or someone taking the next step to further their education, I know there will be many amazing stories shared. We want students to know that we are doing everything we can to support them in their journey, which is why we’ve made record investments in our students, schools, and postsecondary education without raising taxes. We will continue improving every kid’s in-class experience, supporting educators who put their heart and soul into the classroom, and delivering resources to help schools upgrade facilities and equipment. Let’s keep working together to put Michigan students first.”
