Unsung Hero Award

We appreciate our volunteers, and as PTA leaders, we know that PTA cannot exist without volunteers and members. Volunteers help make PTA programs and projects happen!  If your PTA knows an extraordinary individual or local unit that exemplified leadership, innovation and resiliency during the post COVID-19 pandemic , consider nominating the individual or group of volunteers.  We would love to hear how your volunteer made a difference.
