What's New in PTA


This fall, join California State PTA in the "Why I Joined PTA" Celebration. Share a very short video or essay with the reason you first joined your local PTA.

Maybe you wanted to get more involved with your child's school, or get to know the teachers better? Maybe you wanted to be a part of the largest children's advocacy association in the state and nation? Or maybe at first you just wanted to help your child's class win a pizza party. Whatever the reason, we want to hear it! Take a peek at the sample videos for inspiration! 

The first 75 people who help us celebrate by sharing their "Why I Joined PTA" video or essay will receive, courtesy of Jamba Juice, a Jamba Award for a free 16 oz. smoothie from their local store. Plus, between now and December, California State PTA will select certain videos or essays to be featured online. If yours is selected, Jamba Juice will provide your local PTA with an additional 10 Jamba Award cards (a $45 value). These make great rewards for students and teachers.

See why this week's featured member joined PTA!

How to submit:

  • Email your video or essay to website@capta.org
  • Videos may also be submitted on Facebook. Upload your video and tag California State PTA. For instructions on how to tag your video on Facebook, click here

Additional information:

  • Be sure to include your name, contact information and PTA so we can mail your Jamba Award to you!
  • Featured videos and essays will be selected by various members of the Board of Directors including the Vice President for Membership.
