Join us as we celebrate 25 years of character!


For, 2018 marks 25 years of convening groups together to discuss character issues, exchanging failures and best practices. To honor this milestone, we’ve planned a full year of new opportunities and events for the organization and our community, all culminating at the Silver Anniversary Gala and Character Awards Ceremony.

Inaugural Character Awards
On the eve of the 25th National Forum, we will commemorate 25 years of character leadership and advocacy. At the Silver Anniversary Gala we will present the Inaugural Character Awards to 11 people, families and organizations that have made significant contributions to communities of character. The awards will recognize excellence and achievement in the areas of education, business, sports and families. The event will be covered globally in the press and on-line.

Help us honor prominent advocates from our past as well as influential leaders in the present. This gala will bring together character leaders in education, sports, workplaces and communities as a whole.
