Character Education in the Sunshine State
Florida law requires character education in grades K-12, and the Character Council of
Florida has promoted Character First! curriculum as part of its character emphasis.
Efforts have included press releases, e-mail blasts, billboards, magazine articles, a web
page, presentations to civic gatherings, and a "Character Education" information booth
at the School Administrators Conference in Orlando.

The Council co-sponsored the first annual Black History Month writing contest. Fifty
students participated in three age categories. First, second, and third place winners in
each category received a cash prize.

The Council also sponsors after-school programs and 4-H Character Clubs for at-risk
children.
