We are a non-profit corporation dedicated to recognizing and honoring young people in our community who make the right choices and “Do The Right Thing”. Three times a year, children from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg area are nominated by teachers, firefighters, police officers and the public. They are nominated for a self-sacrificing extra-ordinary act, outstanding charitable assistance they have extended, or their exemplary attitude and behavior.
From the nominations received, children are chosen to receive the Do The Right Thing awards. All nominees receive a Certificate of Recognition. The winners also receive an engraved plaque, an incentive prize package, and an invitation to a special ceremony. In addition, the winners are recognized on our website, on the CMS Cable Channel #3, the Charlotte Observer and all area media outlets.
