About Honorary Service Awards (HSA)

Each year, the Thirty-Second District PTA presents Honorary Service Awards to those who support families and children throughout Contra Costa County and would like your assistance in identifying outstanding nominees. Awards will be presented at the Founders Day Dinner in February 2019.

Nominations will be accepted for individuals or organizations, who are volunteers or professionals, whether a PTA member or not, who have made significant contributions to the well-being of children, youth or families throughout Contra Costa County.  While all submissions will be considered, here are some guidelines: 

  • The nominee's effort is above and beyond their job or role. 

  • A person's contributions within a specific unit or school are best honored by the local unit PTA; likewise, 

  • Contributions within an individual council or school district are best honored by the area PTA council. 

  • For more information about HSA, visit the CAPTA website.
