Awards and recognition inspire excellence. Sourcewell recognizes teachers, students, school administrators, and districts leaders who go above and beyond to enhance education in central Minnesota's Cass, Crow Wing, Morrison, Todd, and Wadena counties.

Educators of Excellence

Every spring, Sourcewell recognizes educators and school staff who demonstrate leadership and have had a positive impact on students and colleagues. Each school selects a teacher and staff member who has demonstrated a commitment to excellence.
