As the partners of ‘The Character Week’ initiative, we promote character education among all schools. We are all part of this initiative because we believe that the character development of a child is of the utmost importance. Last year, we hosted a Texas wide Character Education Day Poster Drive and it was a huge success. This year, we plan to welcome all PreK-12 students’ entries from around the world. Join us in this endeavor and be a part of our ‘Coloring the World with CHARACTER’ initiative.
Wishing you the best in this journey!
All PreK-12 students, including homeschoolers around the world can enter the poster drive. Participation is free of charge. The Character Education Week Poster Drive is organized by volunteer participant organizations. The sponsors and partners’ organization’s children can participate in the poster drive in their category. Those students’ entries will be judged separately. All rules and benefits will be the same for the two categories’ participants. The decisions of the judges will be final and binding in all respects for all categories and grade divisions.
All entries must be original and entirely created by the participants. Contact information collected will be used for the purpose of ‘The Character Education Week’ only and will not be used for marketing or any other purposes. The words used in the poster should be in English or in native language with English translation.
All poster entries become the property of the Texas Character Education Day Poster Drive and are non-returnable. The right to modify any poster or slogan for reproduction purposes is reserved. Selected posters will be displayed on the Gallery Section at www.TheCharacterWeek.com and its social media accounts. Students’ identity information may be shared as follows
- First name and initial of the Last name (For Example: John D.)
