The 2017-2018 district-wide PTA/PTSA Awards Reception

      • April 3rd, 6:30-7:30 pm
        Location: Issaquah Middle School Commons
This reception is to honor all Golden Acorn and Outstanding Advocate Award Winners from all of our schools in the Issaquah School District.


The Issaquah PTSA Council presents 4 awards, as follows:

Golden Acorn Award
The Issaquah PTSA Council honors outstanding volunteer service for children by awarding the Golden Acorn Award annually. The winners of this award are PTA/PTSA members who volunteer in ways that meet the mission of PTA: promoting the health, welfare, safety and education of ALL children and youth in our schools and community.
Deadline: Monday, February 12th.


Outstanding Advocate Award
Every year the Council honors Outstanding Volunteer Advocacy for children by awarding the Outstanding Advocate Award. This award is, above all, a PTSA award whose winners volunteer in ways that meet the mission of the PTSA: promoting the health, welfare, safety and education of ALL children and youth in the schools and community through active legislative advocacy.
Deadline: Monday, February 12th.


Outstanding Service Award
Occasionally, but not every year, the Council presents the Outstanding Service Award. This award is presented to a PTA/PTSA member who works for children and youth beyond the bounds of a job, PTA, or a specific school community. This honor goes to a person who has shown concern for all children across the district and who has volunteered his/her time to help them achieve their potential.
Deadline: Monday, February 12th.


Outstanding Educator Award (Presented by the Board of Directors at the Spring Luncheon in May)
The Outstanding Educator Award was created by PTSAs to recognize individuals who have gone beyond the normal expectations of their job to make outstanding contributions to enhance the education of children. An Outstanding Educator can be a teacher, specialist, assistant, support staff, custodian, bus driver, administrator or community member.

All award winners receive the award pin and a special certificate from the Washington State PTA. Their names will be engraved on a plaque in the Issaquah School District main office. The Council also contributes $50 in the winner’s name to the Washington State PTA Scholarship Foundation, which provides scholarships to selected high school students entering post-secondary education.

We would like you to participate in the selection of our award recipient(s) through your recommendations. Our Award committee will make the final selection.

Nominations can be made HERE through midnight, Monday, February 12th.
