2019 Family Engagement Awards

In PTA, Family Engagement is more than an event: it’s an ongoing commitment to welcome all families into the school community and encourage them to support their students at school and at home.

To celebrate PTA’s focus on Family Engagement, FCCPTA is pleased to offer Family Engagement program recognition awards to local PTAs. $1,000 awards will be presented to up to 10 Fairfax County PTAs that have demonstrated outstanding efforts in building meaningful activities, experiences or programs in one (or more) of the following areas:

  • Family Engagement
  • Male Engagement
  • Diversity & Inclusion
  • Military Family Engagement

Each application will be evaluated in accordance with the National PTA’s Standards for Family-School Partnerships.

Award money is unrestricted and may be used as each local PTA best sees fit.

It is Easy to Apply!
