“Character Counts Week"

We will be celebrating the six pillars of Character Counts during National Character Counts week, October 16 - 20, 2017. Every year, the U.S. President, U.S. Senate, state governors, and officials around the world proclaim the third week in October CHARACTER COUNTS! Week. And every year millions of kids in dozens of countries participate. No matter what your political or religious affiliation, this event is about the universal values we share.
