MARTIN COUNTY -

United Way of Martin County's CHARACTER COUNTS! program is seeking nominations to honor worthy young people for the annual Joe Kordick youth character awards sponsored by the Kordick Estate, Kramer, Sopko & Levenstein and Proctor, Crook, Crowder & Fogal.

Each year, CHARACTER COUNTS! recognizes youth whose lives and achievements demonstrate an enduring commitment to any or all of the six pillars of character: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship.

Examples of qualities associated with good character include: uncompromising integrity and courage shown by a willingness to do the right thing despite social pressures or personal risk; generosity of spirit and willingness for self-sacrifice in devotion to helping others; community service in working for the common good; or perseverance and inner strength to overcome physical, financial or other difficulties.

Nominees must be Martin County public school students in seventh, eighth or 12th grades. The deadline for nominations is noon Dec. 10. Nomination forms and guidelines are available at charactercounts.net or by calling (772) 283-4800, Ext. 234.
