“The PTA Honorary Service Awards are designed as a unique way for PTA units, councils, and districts to publicly acknowledge both individuals and organizations for outstanding community service to children and youth in a community,” she added.

“All funds collected with this program are used exclusively to support the California State PTA scholarship and grant programs.”
