2018 Outstanding State PTA Advocacy Award Nomination Form
Advocacy is the cornerstone of National PTA’s mission and our powerful voice is derived from the advocacy of individual PTA units on behalf of educational opportunity and well-being for all children.
National PTA presents an annual award to one state PTA that through their dedication, leadership and efforts positively affected legislative and/or regulatory policy aligned with National PTA’s public policy agenda. The winning PTA will receive two all-expense paid* trips to the 2018 Legislative Conference and will be recognized at an awards ceremony on March 13 in Washington, DC.
*Expenses include and are limited to round-trip airfare, hotel accommodations, ground transportation, conference registration and materials, and per-diem food expenses for the approved dates.
The 2018 Outstanding State PTA Advocacy Award will be presented to a PTA that positively impacted legislation or policy and these efforts must be based on a local or state issue, involve working with multiple organizations or coalitions through grassroots collaboration, and contain a public awareness/advocacy training component for PTA members and the community at large. Nominations will be judged based on the point values assigned to each required question.
Any PTA member may submit a nomination and presidents may nominate their own PTA. Only PTAs in good standing may be nominated. Please note that as part of the process, local and state PTA leaders may be contacted.
Complete nominations must include:
- Contact information for both the PTA nominated and the nominator;
