Honorary Service Awards (HSA) are available to recognize the service and dedication of both individuals and organizations. Contributions to the HSA Program provide funds for the California State PTA Scholarship and Grant Program. The recipients should be recognized for outstanding service to children and youth and are usually presented to others beyond the outgoing officers. Consider those who work behind the scenes, quietly and efficiently serving youth.
The Golden Oak Service Awards is the most prestigious PTA award in California. This award may be given to an individual or organization that has made significant contributions to the welfare of children and youth in the school or community.
