Call for Nominations for HSA  2018

Each year the Palo Alto Council of PTAs may bestow one of several California State PTA Honorary Service Awards to individuals or organizations that have demonstrated outstanding service to children and youth in our community. The individuals or organization nominated must make far-reaching, notable contributions. The PTA Council HSA Committee selects persons or groups who have benefited children and youth on a district-wide or Palo Alto community level.

We also have a new award that debuted last year that honors exceptional PTA volunteers at the unit (school) level.  Each PTA may nomination one person.  High School PTSA may nominate two people.

If you know of someone or an organization that deserves to be honored at this level, please complete this form:   Nominations for HSA2018  Recipients will be announced at our Honorary Service Award Reception on Thursday, April 26th, 2018.   Click here to see past recipients.

Deadline for Nominations is March 1, 2018.

The PTA Council honored Judy Argumendo,
