In 1996, Mario Pastega established the Golden Apple Awards to recognize exceptional Corvallis School District staff. Each year CPSF awards four Mario and Alma Pastega Golden Apple Awards to three teachers and one classified staff person. Golden Apple Award winners receive a monetary gift, a golden apple bell, and a professional portrait by the Ball Studio.
