The Excellence in Education Awards honors individuals throughout the Flint Community Schools (FCS) who demonstrate the characteristics of highly effective and talented educators; who effectively engage students in the process of learning; and who have demonstrated evidence they met the criteria established for each award. The five award categories, include Leadership, Innovation, Putting Students First, the Harriet B. Kenworthy Literacy Award and the Dolores C. Ennis Lifetime Achievement Award.

Twenty-nine FCS educators have been nominated for these five awards.

In addition to the Excellence in Education Awards, there will be a new award this year for a Distinguished Retiree as well as the annual Light a Candle Award, which is presented to an unsung hero who volunteers their time to help students.
