Each year RHS PTSA looks for input from RHS staff, parents, students, and community. The PTSA seeks recommendations in identifying exceptional advocates and volunteers within our school community. Awards are presented to honorees at RHS in several award categories. Recommendations can be sent to the RHS office addressed to “PTSA Awards” or you may email recommendations to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may nominate more than one person for each award.
The Golden Acorn* award is given to a person who has given exemplary volunteer service to children and youth in our school community. This award consists of a gold pin in the shape of an acorn, a special certificate and a contribution of $65.00 in that person’s name to the Washington State PTA Financial Grant Foundation. The foundation provides scholarships each year to high school graduates entering college or vocational school.
Golden Mustang Award* is unique to the Redmond High School community. The recipient should be a positive role model for all students. It is someone that goes beyond their job description to encourage the success of our students, in turn making RHS a better place. The award is offered at the discretion of the Awards Committee and may not be awarded every year.
Outstanding Educator Award* is also offered by the Washington State PTA to recognize individuals who go beyond the normal expectations of their jobs to make the learning environment fun, beneficial and challenging. A pin and certificate are awarded, as well as a donation to the State PTA Scholarship Foundation.
Outstanding Advocate Award* Established in 2004, this award recognizes and honors individuals for their advocacy work on behalf of children and youth. An outstanding advocate could be a PTA grassroots advocate, teacher, assistant, administrator, or community member.
Outstanding Student Advocate Award* recognizes students who have made significant contributions through leadership and service in their school and the RHS community.
Honorary Life Membership Award* recognizes an individual who has contributed significantly over time to the growth and development of PTA at the local unit, council, or state level. This honor is awarded at the discretion of the RHS PTSA Awards Committee and may not be awarded every year.
*These awards consist of a gold pin, a special certificate, and a contribution of $65.00 in the winner’s name to the Washington State PTA Financial Grant Foundation. The foundation provides scholarships each year to high school graduates entering college or vocational school.
