Our Parent Group of the Year search is under way! You may wonder if your group has what it takes. Well, we think it does!

One group will be selected as the National Parent Group of the Year and will receive a $3,000 cash prize. In addition, we will select seven category winners, each of which will be awarded a $500 prize. The categories are: Outstanding Parent Group at a Small School, Outstanding Parent Group at a Private or Parochial School, Outstanding Focus on Academics and Enrichment, Outstanding Family Event, Outstanding Major Project or Program, Outstanding Outreach to a Diverse School Community, and Outstanding Community Service Project.

In addition, we will award a Judges’ Choice winner a $500 prize. This goes to a group that has made an outstanding effort in one or more categories.

We know this is a busy season, but take a little time to submit an entry—the reward could be big! You may think what your group does is routine, but chances are, it’s pretty awesome. So, don’t be shy when you tell us about your group’s accomplishments. You can enter as many categories as you’d like. It helps if you can send along photos or other visuals to tell your story, but that isn’t a requirement.

The search applies to all K-8 parent groups. 

Get your entry to us by June 1, 2015. If you have any questions, visit our Parent Group of the Year page. It includes a FAQ section that you may find helpful. 

We’re really looking forward to hearing all about your groups! Good luck!
