Council Level Awards PTA could not do what it does without amazing volunteers, educators and advocates, and without the support of great local businesses. Nominations are being solicited for Council-level awards. The deadline to submit a nomination is Friday, March 29th. All awards will be presented at the Council's recognition dinner on Thursday, May 2nd.
Please submit the name of the individual, group or business being recommended and describe the basis for the nomination. As Council-level awards, we look for award winners who have made an impact beyond a specific school.
