PTA Logo and Logo Usage

PTA has established guidelines for the proper use of the PTA name, logo, and tagline.  When used properly, PTA’s logo and tagline create a consistent message, help unify all PTAs, and sets PTA apart from the competition.  The success of our PTA brand identity system depends on all PTAs’ adherence to the established guidelines.

Individual Awards and Recognitions

Honorary Georgia PTA Life Achievement Award

Present an Honorary Georgia PTA Life Achievement Award for meritorious and outstanding service on behalf of children and youth. Honorary awards may be presented at local, council, or district meetings and at state conventions. The $25.00 fee includes a certificate suitable for framing and a wallet size identification card. The fee does not include a pin that can be ordered for $25.00 from the state office. These honorary life achievement awards do not carry a privilege to vote and/or hold office.  They provide guest privileges upon payment of the registration fee at the state convention. However, honorary members may become voting members by joining a local unit PTA.

Founders’ Award

The Founders’ Award is the highest Georgia PTA honor that a PTA can bestow upon an individual. Generally, it is awarded to someone who has already received a Georgia PTA Honorary Life Membership. It is an especially significant way to honor a person who has promoted children’s well-being by serving as an advocate for children. The $100.00 fee includes a certificate suitable for framing and a wallet size identification card. The fee does not include a Founder’s Bar that can be ordered for $25.00 from the state office. Like the honorary membership, the Founders’ Award does not carry a privilege to vote and/or hold an office. However, the person so honored may become a voting member by joining a local unit PTA.

Memorials

Local units, councils, districts, or individuals may honor the memory of a deceased individual who has made significant contribution to PTA work by contributing a minimum of $25.00 as a memorial.

Honorary Life Achievement Award (National PTA)

The Honorary Life Achievement Award is the highest honor that a PTA can bestow upon an individual. It is the most significant way to honor worthy people in your school, community, and state. The honored person is someone who has given outstanding service to children by being an advocate for children. The honoree need not be a member of a PTA nor be well known beyond his or her own area of service.  The $125.00 fee includes a certificate and a lapel pin or tie tack
