pTSA award recipients

Every year, the Audubon PTSA recognizes an outstanding volunteer with the Washington State PTSA Golden Acorn award, and an outstanding educator for the WA State PTSA Outstanding Educator award. It can be so hard to choose among the wonderful people who make Audubon Elementary such a special place to be!

 

All award winners receive the award pin and a plaque from the Washington State PTA. The Lake Washington PTSA Council also contributes $50 in the winner’s name to the Washington State PTA Scholarship Foundation, which provides scholarships to selected high school students entering post-secondary education.
