You Rock!

You Rock!The You Rock! award honors LWPTSA Council member PTAs who—through time, creativity and community—help students build for the future by doing something deserving of recognition throughout the district. You Rock! awards are presented at monthly Council membership meetings.

Anyone can nominate a worthy recipient. The award will help us all keep our eyes open wherever we go in the district and will allow us all to learn from some of the innovative work that our PTA and school communities are doing. Some examples of nominations that Council looks for are:

  • a unique program that builds and engages the larger school community—whether social in nature, recreational, action-oriented, educational or otherwise
  • an inclusive and accessible event or program that extends its reach into the greater school community
  • an exemplary newsletter or website that helps build community through outstanding, inclusive information-sharing
  • advocacy activities that support and promote equity for children and families in a PTA’s community
  • a community-engagement program, initiative or action that is easy for other PTAs to replicate in their own schools

We do not use any particular rubric to evaluate nominations, as reasons for nominations will vary widely. Our award committee members and/or Council board members discuss nominations approximately once a month and determine which are appropriate for You Rock! awards on a case-by-case basis.
