Caspers Company McDonald’s© Restaurants has long been an advocate for good character and behavior in our area schools. The Caspers Cares Good Character Award is an award which recognizes three elementary-school students for exemplary character and behavior. (One in K-1st grade. One in 2nd-3rd grade. And one in 4th-5th grade.)
Winners receive a brand-new bicycle, helmet, framed certificate, letter, Happy Meal® coupon, and Good Character lapel pin. Students are nominated by either a teacher or administrator via an online submission form. The nominations are then reviewed by the Community Relations Department along with representatives of the Hillsborough County School District, and then the three winning student’s teachers are notified.
A certificate ceremony was conducted at the elementary school of the winner in the student’s classroom to celebrate their accomplishment. Caspers Company Community Relations, Hillsborough County Superintendent, and Hillsborough Education Administration presented the certificate to the winning student along with the bike and other prizes.
The three winners, their teachers, classmates, parents, and school district leaders were so excited and happy to see the program’s success this school year. Lots of smiles and tears were evident in each classroom when recognizing these student leaders of good character.
