Project Excellence’s mission and purpose is to.... recognize outstanding public educators. It is not intended to be a popularity contest, however, excellent teachers are often popular. The selection is not based on who gets the most ‘votes’ or nominations. It is not based on everyone getting a turn to be acknowledged. It is founded on who is connecting with their students, creating the connection with learning and making the biggest impact on our future citizens. Recognition is not contingent on whether or not they have been selected in the past… When a person is brilliant at what they do, they deserve to recognized again. They have raised the standard of an exceptional educator. They have modeled the way; hopefully peer educators will seek to follow in their footsteps lighting the lamp of learning. 

Project Excellence is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) foundation made possible by the volunteer efforts of visionary business leaders who are interested in the quality of education in Warren County, Ohio. It is funded solely through the generous contributions of supportive Warren County individuals, industries and businesses.
