Outstanding Educator Awards

Strong PTAs must have the cooperation and support of parents, teachers, administrators, and superintendents who support PTA activities. Alabama PTA recognizes educators who put forth special effort to work with PTA through its Outstanding Educator Awards. Submitting an application shows PTA's appreciation and provides an opportunity to recognize that person locally.

 

Past winners of any Educator Award are not eligible to be re-nominated for that same award for 5 years.
