Character Education Partnership to Present National Schools of Character Awards
Deadline: December 6, 2004
The Character Education Partnership (<a href="http://character.org/">http://character.org/</a>)annually presents the National Schools of Character awards to recognize K-12 schools and districts demonstrating outstanding character education initiatives that yield positive results in student behavior, school climate, and academic performance.
CEP will recognize approximately ten public and private K-12 schools and school districts in the United States as models of effective character education. Although winners may differ in method, content, and scope, all must emphasize core ethical values such as honesty, respect, responsibility, and caring.
To be eligible, schools must have been engaged in character education for a minimum of three full years, starting no later than December 2001 for the 2005 awards. Districts need to have been engaged in character education for a minimum of four full years, starting no later than December 2000. Smaller administrative units that maintain a separate identity within a large district may apply in the district category (e.g., a school pyramid or cluster).
Selected schools and districts will receive a cash award of $2,000, national recognition, and a featured position in CEP’s National Schools of Character publication.
CEP also awards annual citations for promising practices in character education. Selected schools (or districts) receive a certificate and will have a description of their promising practice appear in the annual National Schools of Character publication. (Promising Practices applications for 2005 must be postmarked by March 15, 2005.)
Complete program and application information is available at the CEP Web site.
