Scholarship Auction

Each year, local PTAs in the Lake Washington PTSA Council are asked to participate in the scholarship auction for raising funds to recognize amazing students and staff in LWSD.

 

This year, we are doing things differently. The auction will be 100% online and instead of baskets we are asking local units to donate experiences.

 

Experiences could be local restaurant gift cards, cooking class, yoga class, author reading, etc. Be creative! Please steer away from physical items and baskets. For auction instructions and experience ideas, click here.

 

If you willing to donate an experience, please sign up for a drop off time and submit your theme by Thursday, October 15.

If you are interested in advocacy, you can participate in the 42nd Annual Legislative Assembly which will take place in a virtual format on October 24-25, 2020.
