Honorary Service Awards
Nominations for the year 2023-2024 are yet to open. Watch this space for updates.
Do you know someone in the Live Oak community who is consistently going above and beyond? A teacher or other staff member? Room Parent? Para-educator? PTA volunteer? Restaurant or other local organization? Show them how much you appreciate all their hard work by nominating them for an HSA Award!
Honorary Service Awards are a unique way for us to publicly acknowledge both individuals and organizations for outstanding service to children and youth in our community. These special members of our community provide thousands of hours each year to support Live Oak. Please take a few minutes to review the selection criteria (on the FAQ page) and nominate one (or more!) of Live Oak’s many hard-working volunteers, teachers, support staff, community members, and/or parents for an award.
HSA Wall of Fame - Congratulations to all our Live Oak Honorary Service Award Winners. Take a look at our past HSA Super Stars. A contribution is made by the Live Oak PTA in each recipient's name to the Honorary Service Award Program Fund which enables the California State PTA to provide scholarships for students and individuals to further their education, as well as grants for Units, Councils, and Districts.
What are the different types of Honorary Service Awards?
