Local PTA Impact Awards

Virginia PTA is pleased to offer program recognition awards to PTA/PTSA local units to celebrate the impact your volunteer work and school partnerships have made on students, families and your school community.  We encourage all PTA/PTSAs to apply!

Local Unit of Excellence

Volunteer of the Year 

Annually, Virginia PTA recognizes an outstanding elementary school and secondary school volunteer who have made a positive impact on their school and its students. This special volunteer does not need to be the person who logs the most volunteer hours or serves as an officer or committee chair but rather someone who has worked to build a strong school community.  Apply Here

Diversity & Inclusion

Annually, Virginia PTA recognizes a local school PTA unit that demonstrated outstanding effort in providing impactful activities and programs that support diversity and inclusion.

Power Partners

These award recognizes principals at the elementary and secondary level as well as superintendents who have demonstrated that strong family-school partnerships are the key to student success. 


Local unit must be in good standing to be eligible for any award.  Questions?  Contact VPPrograms@vapta.org
