Georgia Parent Leadership Awards

The 2019 Parent Leadership Awards are sponsored by the Georgia Department of Education and the Georgia Parent Teacher Association. GaDOE and GA PTA established this award to recognize parents across Georgia who utilize their skills and talents to strengthen our schools and positively impact students’ lives. The award also aims to inspire all parents to use their unique talents to lead the way in building positive outcomes for all children.
