DON JUAN AVILA MIDDLE SCHOOL PTSA – Honorary Service Award Program

In the long-standing tradition of PTSAs around the country, DJAMS PTSA is soliciting nominations for Honorary Service Awards.  Please see the attached application form. 

Honorary Service Awards (HSA) are available to recognize the service and dedication of both individuals and organizations. The applicants being considered should be recognized for outstanding service to children and youth and not for routine, assigned responsibilities or for retirement.  Remember to consider those who work behind the scenes quietly and efficiently serving youth.

The HSA Program includes the Very Special Person Award, Honorary Service Award, Continuing Service Award, Outstanding Teacher Award, Outstanding Administrator Award and Golden Oak Service Award.  A person may receive more than one of any of these awards.

VERY SPECIAL PERSON AWARD - The Very Special Person (VSP) Award may be given by individuals or PTA constituent organizations to recognize an individual or group for their service to PTA.

HONORARY SERVICE AWARD - An Honorary Service Award (HSA) may be given to an individual or organization in special recognition of outstanding service to children and youth in our community, going above and beyond what is asked of them.

CONTINUING SERVICE AWARD - A Continuing Service Award (CSA) may be given to an individual or organization in special recognition of ongoing or long-time service to children and youth, providing support year after year.  The individual/organization may or may not have previously received a California State PTA Honorary Service Award.

OUTSTANDING TEACHER AWARD - The Outstanding Teacher Award (OTA) may be given to recognize a teacher for outstanding service to children and youth through PTA, school, or community.

OUTSTANDING ADMINISTRATOR AWARD - The Outstanding Administrator Award (OAA) may be given to recognize an administrator for outstanding service to children and youth through PTA, school, or the community.

GOLDEN OAK SERVICE AWARD - The Golden Oak Service Award 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.

Please deliver all Honorary Service Award Applications to PTSA box in the DJAMS mailroom by March 15, 2019
