Character Day Awards

Essential workers, WE SEE and APPRECIATE YOU! You have the COURAGE to be on the front line serving our community and catering to our needs.

So many people showed RESILIENCE and CREATIVITY, pivoting from job loss to opening new businesses or by finding ways to be their brother’s keeper. Volunteers, you are essential too. You stepped up to the plate when our country needed you. WE SALUTE YOU!

We are all unique, each of us possess 24-character strengths, but we do so to varying degrees. Character strengths are the things we do when no one is looking. Each character strength falls under one of six virtue categories, which are universal across cultures and nationalities.

Let’s celebrate the people who make us feel WELCOMED, SEEN, HEARD, VALUED, LOVED, and SUPPORTED.

Nominations are now closed. Thank you!
