In 1967, the Olive E. Glaubitz Awards were introduced. Nine citizenship awards of $50.00 each were presented, to one student in each Home & School area in Ontario. These awards were originally made possible through contributions from associations and councils in memory of Mrs. Glaubitz, a past-president of OFHSA, and they continued for a time through generous donations from her son.
The Citizenship Awards were reintroduced in 1981 and continue to be presented. Eight provincial awards of $100.00 each for Grade 5 through Grade 12 are presented annually to students chosen from nominations submitted by school staff, the Home and School association or the student council. These awards are supported by the funds received for Life Memberships presented by Associations and Home & School Councils.
This award is presented to an individual who has demonstrated outstanding service to education by fostering co-operation between parents and teachers and by promoting understanding between the home and the school. This award is meant for Home & School members who have made a significant contribution to the Federation at the provincial level. The nominees must be serving or have served a full term on a minimum of two of: Home & School Association executive, Home & School Council executive, a Regional Board executive, or the OFHSA Board of Directors as either an executive or on a Board of Directors committee.
The award was named the Col. R.S. McLaughlin Memorial Award to recognize an endowment from the McLaughlin family. Mrs. McLaughlin served the Ontario Federation of Home and School Associations for many years, including as president from 1931 to 1936.
This award was introduced in 1989-90 and is presented to an educator who has demonstrated in an exceptional way her or his support for parental involvement in education through the Home & School organizations. Nominations may be submitted by Associations, Home & School Councils, Regional Boards, or the OFHSA Board of Directors.
