2016 Promising Practices Recipient

2017 Promising Practices Award Recipients Will be Announced the Week of May 15.

Each year, as part of the Schools of Character program, recognizes educators in the United States and elsewhere who have implemented unique, specific, and effective character education strategies.

We are not looking for a description of your whole character education program, but rather for a specific practice or aspect of your program that other schools may learn from and even replicate. Promising Practices put one or more of the 11 Principles into action. Learn more by downloading our 11 Principles of Effective Character Education.
