Please take a few minutes to complete Golden Acorn Award and Outstanding Educator Award surveys.
A Golden Acorn Award is presented by a local PTA or council to a school or community volunteer in recognition of her or his dedication and service to children and youth. Since the beginning of this program in the 1930s, more than 54,000 Golden Acorn Awards have been presented to volunteers throughout Washington state. Recipients receive a certificate and pin, and a contribution is made in their name to the Washington State PTA Scholarship Program that benefits students.
The WSPTA Outstanding Educator Award is presented to an individual who has exhibited continued and dedicated statewide contributions and efforts to enhance the educational outcomes of all children or youth. This is the “Educator of the Year” award from WSPTA (an educator is not limited to a teacher).
This award may also be given by a local PTA or council to honor outstanding educators who have made significant contributions in their community. An educator may be defined as a teacher, assistant, specialist, support staff, administrator or community members.
