Congratulations to students from Port Salerno Elementary School and Palm City Elementary School for winning CHARACTER COUNTS! Good Character Awards at the Education Foundation of Martin County's 4th Annual Elementary Book Bowl on April 2, 2015!
United Way of Martin County presented a Character Counts! Good Character Award to the teams for representing the six pillars of character: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship.
Palm City Elementary School won the Book Bowl, which encourages students to read literature selected by the Florida Association of Media in Education. Eleven teams of students in grades 3 through 5 from Martin County elementary schools competed in the event, which is based upon the 15 books selected by the Sunshine State Young Reader's Award Program, a statewide reading motivation program. Questions were posed, with each team having 45 seconds to write the answer, game-show style.
