The Annual Excel Awards

Join us in celebrating excellence in teaching with the annual Excel Awards!

Each year, nine classroom teachers and one school administrator are honored for their efforts in forging a “Legacy of Leadership & Learning” in the difficult and vital work that they do. The nine winning classroom teachers will then have the opportunity to apply for the Granite School District Teacher of the Year award, along with past Excel Award winners who are current classroom teachers. The GSD Teacher of the Year award winner then represents Granite School District as the applicant for the Utah Teacher of the Year award. We are honored to be a part of the nomination process to honor Utah’s top educators.

About the Excel Award

Since Granite Education Foundation’s inception in 1988, educator recognition and support has been a key priority. The Excel Awards are a prestigious honor given to the top ten educators of Granite School District and has been sponsored by Granite Education Foundation since the beginning. Students, administrators, parents, and colleagues nominate educators that exemplify the values of Granite School District. These individuals are then put through a rigorous review and observation process by experienced education specialists who ultimately identify ten teachers and administrators from all over the district.
