Updates & Reminders
Theme Search Contest Winner Announced!
This Spring, National PTA received over 100 student theme search submissions from 24 participating State PTA Congresses. With the support of the National PTA Mission Engagement Committee and Board Officers, one student’s theme was selected for the 2019-2020 program year.
Look Within is the winning theme submitted by Enashele Campbell, a Kindergartener from H. Guy Child Elementary PTA in Ogden, UT! Enashele will receive a prize of $100 from National PTA.
We hope your state joins the 2018-2019 national search for a future program theme! To host the theme search contest in your state, see the Template Theme Search Packet below. Please add our new winner “Look Within” to your packet before distributing—because each theme can be only used once!
