Spotlight Awards Help PTAs Share Special Programs

PTA leaders bring innovative services to our kids and schools each and every day, and the California State PTA Spotlight Awards are here to help recognize and share special programs.

PTA units can apply for awards for Leadership Development, Student Achievement, Environment, Family Involvement, Membership and Outreach, Collaboration, Advocacy and Student Involvement. And don’t forget: There are also special awards for PTA councils!

Units recognized with Spotlight Awards receive two paid registrations to our annual convention, a $100 gift certificate for use at the convention PTA Store and the opportunity to spread the word about their programs at a convention workshop.

Applications are due February 1. And to make it even easier to apply, your unit can submit an application for any or all of these award categories on a single application form. For more information on these unique recognitions, please contact the California State PTA Spotlight Award Committee Chairman at
