Individual Awards Timeline & Tips PTA is a volunteer organization. Each year, PTAs have the opportunity to recognize and thank their volunteers through individual awards. The culmination of these awards is the Everett PTSA Council Awards Recognition Banquet. Please see the attached document. It is a suggested timeline that will assist your PTA in organizing the nomination process, presentation and celebration of your Golden Acorns, Outstanding Educators, Outstanding Advocates, Outstanding Student Advocates and honorary Lifetime recipients. Please keep in mind deadlines for nominations, ordering awards, presentations and especially RSVP for the banquet.
