Ballard Performing Arts Boosters Outstanding Volunteer Awards

Golden Note Winners

Golden Note Awards are given to parent and guardian volunteers who have shown exceptional volunteering and support of the Ballard Performing Arts program over the years. Awards are bestowed by the directors, and given at the sprint concert by the corresponding group’s rep. Much like the PTA Golden Acorn award for outstanding volunteer contributions, the Golden Note winner gets a pin.
