What is Honorary Service?
The Honorary Service Award is given to individuals by the PTA in recognition of outstanding service to children and youth. The HSA Program includes the Honorary Service Award, Continuing Service Award, Golden Oak Service Award, Very Special Person Award, and donations to the HSA Program. A person may receive more than one of any of these awards.
Honorary Service Awards (HSA) are available to recognize the service and dedication of both individuals and organizations. They may be awarded only by unit, council, district PTA and the California State PTA and should be presented by duly authorized PTA representatives at PTA sponsored meetings or at functions of allied groups.
Funds contributed to the HSA Program provide resources for the California Scholarship and Grant Program (Scholarships 7.28, 338; Grants 7.17, 312). The Laurelwood PTA contributes thirty dollars for each recipient to the Honorary Service Award Fund to the California Congress of Parents and Teachers. This revolving fund makes loans to deserving students in different fields of education beyond high school.
A Continuing Service Award may be given to a person who has previously received an Honorary Service Award.
Names of candidates for the Honorary Service Award, along with lists of current and past contributions, may be submitted each Spring. Click Honorary Service Nomination form to download from this site.
Candidates for the Honorary Service Award will be evaluated by a committee, which will select one or two awardees, who are recognized by the PTA during a special presentation ceremon(ies).
