Without volunteers the PTA would not exist. We appreciate every one of them. The PTAC Essence Award is to recognize an outstanding PTA member of the Greenwich Public Schools PTA communities, who through exemplary achievement, has inspired others, demonstrated selfless spirit and made a significant difference in our school community (individual school or district wide). This individual is a willing member of a team, whether in a leadership role or in the trenches performing thankless tasks that need to be done. The devotion to the goals and values of the Greenwich PTAs is demonstrated in this individual’s ongoing involvement and willingness to make our school community better for all constituents.
An individual must be a member in good standing in one or more of the 15 Greenwich PTAs in order to be eligible for this award. Members of the PTAC Executive Board and the Selection Committee are not eligible.
Parents, teachers, staff, students, principals, administrators, or members of our Greenwich community may submit nominations. A 500-word maximum nomination narrative addressing the award criteria above should be submitted to Marlene Gilbert, Chair of PTAC Essence Award Committee, at PTACEssence@gmail.com no later than April 25, 2014.
A committee of five people will review each nomination. The committee will include the Essence Award Committee Chair, two PTAC Executive Board members, one Greenwich PTA Co-President, and one additional Council Committee Co-Chair. The nominees will be evaluated against the criteria set forth above. One individual may be selected from the nominations. All nominees will be recognized at the last PTA Council regular meeting. The Essence Award recipient will be announced at the PTAC Essence Award Coffee in May. All nominated individuals will be recognized for their contributions through the local media or PTAC webpage.
