HSA Nomination Form for UNITS – You will need to add your specific school information to this form. This will be the form you use to solicit nominations for your school.
HSA Nomination Form Council Level – You should also be soliciting nominations for the Council. These will come directly to the Council and should be used to honor more of a Camarillo wide individual, group, company, etc.
HSA Information Deadlines for Units – This document is important for you to review. This has all of the deadlines of when nominations, Honorees and registrations for our event are due. It also has a timeline (which we also show below in this email) an information on all of the available awards.
HSA nominees are selected by your parents, PTA board, teachers, staff, etc. Each school should have an HSA Chairperson and committee (ideally 4 -5 people) who will review each nominee and decide on who will be chosen to be honored by your school and what level/type of award they will receive. A list of the awards is on your information sheet, or you can click here. Once the committee selects their recipients, you will order certificates, send out your invitations to the banquet, turn in your RSVPs to Camarillo Council, show up and enjoy our event on Tuesday, April 25th @ the Camarillo Community Center.
The cost of each ticket will be approximately $35.00 and you should have a line item in your unit Budget to cover the cost of the ticket for your President, Principal, HSA Chair, HSA Recipients and guest, if your budget allows. You will also have the cost of the award and any special “gift/flowers” you give to them that evening. The reason we mention this… if you have a budget of $500.00, you need to realize you may only be able to honor 3-4 individuals. It is ultimately up to your unit who you honor and what your budget says, we have just been asked to provide some guidance.
Events: There are 3 distinct levels of Honorary Service Awards.
Those persons who have been nominated and selected by each Unit PTA for contributions made at the school level. The event to honor these recipients takes place in connection with the Camarillo Council Awards in Camarillo.
Those persons who have been nominated and selected by the Camarillo Council for contributions made within Camarillo. The event to honor these recipients is the same event as above.
Those persons who have been nominated and selected by the 12th District HSA Committee for contributions made within Ventura County. The event to honor these recipients is normally held in February of each year.
Nominations are accepted for each of the levels mentioned above. Anyone may make a nomination for any level (Unit, Council or District). At each level, a committee will select the recipients and the recipients will then be honored at the appropriate event. Keep in mind nominations should be made at the appropriate level. For example…someone who is nominated for their work within Ventura County should be nominated at the District Level. Nominations for work in Camarillo should be made at the Camarillo Council level. Nominations for someone at a school level should be made at the Unit Level. Nominations of both individuals and organizations will be accepted at all levels.
Please be sure to read through the checklist below. (This is an important information for your use).
Deadlines for the 12th District nominations should be obtained by visiting www.12thdistrictpta.org.

Anyone or any group may donate to the HSA program fund; the fund is not limited to contributions by PTAs.
If you have any questions or would like to go over the process in more detail, feel free to contact our HSA Committee Chair with any questions.
We are collecting nominations at the Council Level as well. If you know of a person or company who helps the children and or schools of Camarillo as a whole, please nominate them at the Council Level (that form is attached as well).
Now, get started and have fun! There are some amazing people out there who need us to tell them how wonderful they are and how much we appreciate what they do for our school and our children.
