PRLog - Dec. 18, 2012 - WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Washington, D.C. (December 18, 2012) -- The Character Education Partnership (CEP), a national advocate and leader for the character education movement, is pleased to announce the application process for the 2013 Promising Practices in Character Education is open and encourages those who implement character education in their programs to apply. Educators can apply between Dec. 17, 2012 and March 17, 2013. Click HERE to apply online.
Promising Practices in Character Education are successful, unique ways of reinforcing character traits in K-12 students. Most practices are simple in scope and inexpensive by design, yet enable students to experience positive character first-hand, as well as enrich their lives and the lives of others.  Popular Past Promising Practice Topics Have Included:
Teaching/Learning of Core Values
Service to Community
Student Autonomy/Empowerment

If your school or district has developed and implemented a unique character education practice, CEP encourages you to apply. The organization seeks specific practice or aspect of your school’s program that other schools may learn from and perhaps replicate. Promising Practices implement one or more of CEP’s 11 Principles of Effective Character Education into action.  (http://www.character.org/more-resources/publications/11-p...)
“When people share their practices in character education, students, educators and communities all win,” said Mark Hyatt, President & CEO of the Character Education Partnership. “We are excited to receive applications for 2013 in order to highlight those who have used character education to improve students’ lives.”
As part of its National Schools of Character (NSOC) program, CEP recognizes Promising Practices in Character Education in schools, districts, and youth-serving organizations in the United States and throughout the world. CEP posts descriptions of these best practices so that character educators from across the world may share ideas, strategies, and network.
In 2012, CEP awarded 297 Promising Practices to schools, districts, and organizations from across the United States, as well as from Brazil, Canada, Hong Kong, and Mexico. Learn more about each of these effective strategies by browsing the 2012 Promising Practices.
Promising Practices Benefits:
National recognition at CEP’s annual conference, the National Forum on Character Education
Inclusion in CEP’s searchable online database of Promising Practices for 3 years (one webpage per winning practice) as well as the annual NSOC magazine
Free members-only resources such as CEP newsletter, Forum discounts/scholarships, and webinars
