Do The Right Thing - Looking for Nominations
The Do The Right Thing Award program recognizes youth for their positive behavior, accomplishments, and good deeds by rewarding students who strive to make good choices, do well in school, give back to their communities, or demonstrate a “turnaround” or improved behavior, and by highlighting these students and their stories in the media to show that good kids are newsworthy. Some examples are: • Acts of heroism • Assisting Law Enforcement/ Emergency Medical Technicians/First Responders • Leadership/role model behavior • Civic responsibility/volunteerism, etc.
Any student enrolled in K - 12th grades within Monroe County is eligible. The incident the student is nominated for must have occurred in Monroe County, and within one year of the nomination.
