Child Advocates of the Year

Child Advocate of the Year Awards

Outstanding, inspiring advocacy work is happening in school communities across the Commonwealth all of the time.

We want to recognize the advocacy work that has positively affected your community, your local school board policies, or state legislation and regulatory policy.

Please consider nominating an outstanding youth or individual PTA advocate, elected official, local unit PTA, or council PTA that has done great advocacy work to support the academic success, health and welfare of students.  Awardees will be recognized at the Virginia PTA Annual Meeting.

You can also nominate yourself!


Although not necessary, special consideration will be given to nominees whose efforts have included an education or learning component for PTA members or the community-at-large or advocates who have worked with multiple organizations or coalitions to elevate their advocacy work.
