PTSA Honorary Service Awards

Honorary Service Awards

The Honorary Service Awards (HSA) program is designed as a unique way for PTSA to publicly acknowledge both individuals and organizations for outstanding community service to children and youth in a community. The following 6 awards may be given to any recipient:

  • Very Special Person Award 
  • Honorary Service Award 
  • Continuing Service Award 
  • Golden Oak Service Award 
  • Outstanding Teacher Award 
  • Outstanding Administrator Award


HSAs can be awarded throughout the year, but in the past SRV HSAs were presented at the last PTSA meeting in May. HSAs are the perfect way to recognize graduating parent volunteers for their long-time service. The HSA Chair is appointed early in the term (July / August) to allow time for recruitment of committee members, planning of award presentation, and ordering certificates & pins online from CA State PTA. Our HSA Committee should be composed of different volunteers each year, be representative of the entire school community, and have an uneven number of members (five is suggested). All funds collected with this program are used exclusively to support the California State PTA scholarship and grant programs. Download the brochure for more information
