The Outstanding Educator Award is presented to an individual who has demonstrated outstanding educational contributions and opportunities for children that are beyond the normal scope of their jobs. The recipient makes the learning environment fun, beneficial and challenging. An educator may be defined as a teacher, assistant, custodian, bus driver, administrator or member.
When we present an Outstanding Educator Award, the individual is given a hand-painted gold pin in the shape of an apple, and a special certificate. We also contribute $65.00 in the person’s name to the Washington State PTA Scholarship Foundation. This foundation provides scholarships each year totaling approximately $66,000 to Washington State high school graduates entering their freshman year at a college, university or vocational school of their choice.
We would like you to participate in the selection of our award recipient(s) through your recommendations. Recipients will be selected based on a majority nomination via this nomination form. Please return it to our AJ PTSA mail box by March 6th.
