• In the North Tonawanda City School District, we celebrate young people who choose to Do The Right Thing!  Sponsored by the Niagara County Sheriff’s Department, the Niagara Falls Police Department, and the Niagara Police Athletic League, the Do The Right Thing program is designed to positively impact the youth of Niagara County who distinguish themselves through their behavior and by establishing themselves as role models for their peers.

    Every other month up to 80 children from the Niagara County area, on the basis of their exemplary behavior and attitude will be nominated by teachers, police officers, youth leaders, and the public for the “Do The Right Thing” Award  and 8 finalists are selected from this group.  In order to reach as many young people as possible and to reinforce their positive behavior, the first 80 nominees receive certificates of recognition and a T-shirt.  The 8 finalists will also receive a plaque, incentive prize package, and recognition in the Do The Right Thing public service announcements in local newspapers and TV.


    If you know of such a child from your school whose behavior or attitude deserves special recognition, please see the link below for a nomination form.  Please note that a specific accomplishment or note-worthy deed is not a prerequisite for nomination.  Help us reinforce to our young people that good deeds do not go unnoticed!
