CHARACTER COUNTS! Week

October 15 - 21, 2017

CHARACTER COUNTS! Week is celebrated nationally each year during the third full week of October. Our celebration in Tulare County includes the Tulare County Office of Education and the Visalia Times-Delta partnering to sponsor the Kids of Character Awards. During the month of September, the Visalia Times-Delta and the Tulare Advance-Register print nomination forms for the Kids of Character Awards. Using this form or the online version at tcoe.org/KidsOfCharacter, schools and communities are invited to nominate youngsters in their communities who have demonstrated acts of good character in their homes, schools and youth organizations.

Students receiving the Kids of Character Awards receive a CHARACTER COUNTS! certificate, a CHARACTER COUNTS! pencil and a Tulare County CHARACTER COUNTS! school folder. In addition, their names appear in the Visalia Times-Delta or in the Tulare Advance-Register, as well as online at tcoe.org/KidsOfCharacter during CHARACTER COUNTS! Week.

Since so many of our youth have exceptional character, the Visalia Times-Delta staff interviews, photographs and shares selected stories of students every day during CHARACTER COUNTS! Week. These students profiled in the Visalia Times-Delta and the Tulare Advance-Register along with the finalists in each pillar category are then honored at the Annual Provident-Salierno Family Foundation Kids of Character Reception.
