National/State Schools of Character Awards Program
The National and State Schools of Character program, sponsored by character.org (formerly CEP, The Character Education Partnership) is a free school improvement process which has offered self-assessment and expert feedback to U.S. schools and districts engaged in character education since 1998. The Character Council, in partnership with character.org, offers the annual State Schools of Character (SSOC) awards in both Ohio and Kentucky to schools and districts with outstanding character education initiatives. Learn more about applying for the SSOC/NSOC awards by downloading the SSOC application. Next deadline is December 2018.
