Who Needs To Be Recognized At Your School?


The Utah PTA Awards Program is designed to offer greater opportunities for recognizing those who devote their time and energy on behalf of children. 

Recognition is a key factor in any successful business/organization as well as a key factor in retaining quality volunteers. Awards and recognition are a necessary priority in PTA at all levels. You will find that awards and recognition will provide your PTA with many great benefits.

The concept behind the Awards Program is that our thanks be heartfelt and genuine, and not necessarily extravagant.

You may want to have an Awards Appointee on your PTA board. Duties and Time Line attached below.

Award Deadlines:

  • Local: Decided on individual basis
  • Council:  January 15
  • Region:  February 1
