NOW ACCEPTING NOMINATIONS FOR 2019 IH PTSA AWARDS

Each year, the IH PTSA Awards Committee solicits nominations, evaluates, then selects recipients for the Golden Acorn, Outstanding Student Advocate, and Outstanding Educator Awards.

The Golden Acorn Award honors individuals who've given exemplary volunteer service to children and youth within our school community, and PTSA members for their contributions to our organization.

The Outstanding Student Advocate Award honors individuals for their continued and dedicated advocacy for all children, and a demonstrated commitment in helping create strong policies relating to the health, welfare, safety, and education of children and youth. The potential award-winner might be a PTA grassroots advocate, teacher, assistant, administrator or community member.

The Outstanding Educator Award was created by PTSAs to recognize individuals who have provided outstanding educational opportunities for children and youth, beyond the normal scope of their jobs. An educator can be, but is not limited, a teacher, including specialists, support staff, administrators, or community members.

Each Golden Acorn, Outstanding Student Advocate, and Outstanding Educator Award recipient is given a gold pin, their name added to a plaque in the main office, and acknowledged at an all district reception. Our PTSA also contributes $65 in the recipient’s name to the Washington State PTA Scholarship Foundation. These funds provide scholarships to post-secondary students.

Nominations for the Golden Acorn, Outstanding Student Advocate and Outstanding Educator awards are taken within the 1st quarter of every year.

Award nominations may be submitted by opening the appropriate forms (links located below), completing as much information as possible, and emailing nomination forms to the PTSA Awards committee chair: Marni Kilzi, at MKilzi@msn.com.
