PTA Life Achievement Awards

Give the National PTA® Life Achievement Award—the highest honor from the nation’s largest child advocacy organization—to the person who daily lives out his or her commitment to children.

Complete the Form or call (800) 307-4782 to submit your request.

How will you say: “Thank you for your outstanding service to our children”

Recognize and thank that special person you know who goes above and beyond for all children—the one who acts as a tireless advocate for children’s education, health, and well-being.

The recipient of the National PTA Life Achievement Award will receive a certificate of recognition, a congratulatory letter from the National PTA President, and an elegant 10-karat gold lapel pin or tie tack. The award items will be sent according to the directions accompanying your request and a sample press release will be provided for use in your local media.

The $195* fee for presenting the Life Achievement Award supports the National PTA Endowment Fund and helps ensure the longevity of the association. Your honoree need not be a PTA member to receive the award.

Present the National PTA Life Achievement Award at a ceremony recognizing your honoree’s work. In doing so, you will generate positive publicity and bring together your school, your community, and your PTA.

*The fee for the Life Achievement Award recently changed to $195 from $125. This is the first increase in the fee since 2011 and is needed to cover the rising costs related to producing each award.
