The Golden Acorn Award is one of the most prestigious Washington stat PTA awards given by local PTA to acknowledge the services of volunteers, outstanding educators, and advocates, who volunteer their time at local PTA to work with children and community. Recipients receive an Acorn pin, certificate, an invitation to the banquet. Local PTA donates to the organization in their name. Recognition happens annually, and the community chooses the recipient through an online survey and voting.
