Scholarship Auction

online only scholarship auction nov 22 - dec 3

2021-2022 Auction Chairs: Chitra Ramaswamy and Pallavi Garg auction [at]

Each year, local PTAs in the Lake Washington PTSA Council are asked to participate in the scholarship auction. Like last year, this year also the auction will be 100% online and instead of baskets we are asking local units to donate experiences (see helpful hints below).  

What isn’t changing is raising funds to recognize amazing students and staff in LWSD. Proceeds from this auction go to the council’s scholarship fund to provide scholarships to graduating seniors and staff across our district.

About the Auction

The Lake Washington PTSA Council began its scholarship program over 35 years ago to assist graduating seniors with their college education. In 1990, scholarships were added for district staff to help defray the costs of continuing education.

Funding for these scholarships is primarily provided by the PTAs in the Lake Washington School District. Each PTA makes an annual donation to the scholarship fund and contributes a themed basket or experience to be auctioned off at the Lake Washington Resource Center. The generosity of community partners such as the LWSD Central Leadership team, Lake Washington Schools Foundation, Lake Washington Education Association and individual donors, help make this event a successful tradition for the LWPTSA Council.

The auction is held annually in November – December. Everyone is welcome to attend. There will be many opportunities for supporting Lake Washington School District seniors and staff.
