March is National Reading Month.
Celebrate with a Family Reading Experience!
Throughout the year, National PTA offers awards or grants to honor or support PTAs as they: engage families, support student success, improve the health and safety of students and families, increase access to arts education or celebrate advocacy and diversity.
There are also a host of conferences and conventions that are beneficial to members and will help to educate and strengthen your advocacy efforts within your PTA.
PTA Reflections Arts Enhancement Grants
The Mary Lou Anderson Reflections Arts Enhancement Grant provides matching dollar funding to local PTAs to support in- and after-school arts enhancement projects within their communities. PTAs serving at-risk student populations are particularly encouraged to apply!
Jan Harp Domene Diversity and Inclusion Award
National PTA is now accepting applications for the
Jan Harp Domene Diversity and Inclusion Award. This award recognizes PTAs that best demonstrate outstanding achievement in the areas
of diversity and inclusion, as well as efforts to end discriminatory practices.
