2020 Local Unit Awards

Arizona PTA gives out 9 awards to local units and volunteers for achievements over the previous year.  

Teacher of the Year is chosen from the previous winners from the previous years and therefore there is no form for this award.

Read below about each of the awards and submit your nominations today! You may submit as many nominations as you want for as many of the awards as you want! 

Please email office@azpta.org if you need clarification or help with this process. Awards will be announced as part of the 2020 Arizona PTA Virtual Convention. 

New this year: The Sunflower Award

The Sunflower Award: Creating Diversity and Inclusion within your local unit

The Arizona PTA will go out to the local unit that demonstrates the continual process of reaching out to their missing pieces in their community. As PTA, we should be out in the community sprinkling seeds of inclusion (not just diversity) and acceptance in order to cultivate growth within our organization. The significance of the sunflower is sunflowers lean towards the light in order to grow.  When there is no light they lean toward each other. As an organization, we should lean towards each other for ideas and understanding. Being the light that empowers our communities.
