Purple Star Award Application

Schools must complete four requirements to receive the Purple Star Award Designation. Designate a Purple Star Liaison who works in the building, attend required Liaison training, dedicate a resource page on the school website for military-connected families and host one annual military recognition event. Once the school completes all of the required activities, they submit an application to the statewide advisory board for review. 

The deadline for applications is March 15th  and October 15th.  The Purple Star Advisory Board reviews the applications and awards the school in April for Month of the Military Child and in November for Veterans Appreciation Month.  Schools may host an award ceremony at their schools to receive special recognition after receiving the award and a member of the Purple Star Award Advisory Board will present the award to the school. Purple Star Awarded schools also receive special recognition statewide their achievement.
