Awards of $1,000 to USA state, district, council, regional, and local PTAs to honor and recognize excellence in efforts to eliminate discriminatory practices and to promote inclusion and diversity. The award is intended for PTAs that have undertaken diversity and inclusion efforts within the past year.

PTAs who have made intentional efforts toward diversity and inclusion should apply. Some examples:

  • PTAs that have identified which demographic groups are missing from their membership and program participation, and have a plan to address the barriers that prevent them from being engaged
  • PTAs whose membership and program participation has become more reflective of the diversity of the communities served (in race/ethnicity, languages, income, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, etc.)
  • PTAs who have ensured their focus on diversity, equity and inclusion in membership is ongoing and evolving based the changing demographics and communities they serve
  • PTAs that have designed new programs or changed existing programs based on diverse community needs and interests
  • PTAs that have developed program models and approaches to reduce disparities and achieve equitable outcomes
  • PTAs that have developed consistent relationships with community members from identities/backgrounds currently or traditionally underrepresented
  • PTAs that have shifted their norms and practices so that diverse lived experiences are welcomed and can meaningfully contribute
  • PTAs that have assessed and removed or worked on removing the structural barriers that keep underrepresented groups from seeking or attaining leadership in PTA
