National Museum of Patriotism, Kamaron Institute Announce National Finalists KC3™ Citizenship Award


WEBWIRE

Atlanta, GA (April 8, 2005) – The National Museum of Patriotism (www.museumofpatriotism.org) and the Kamaron Institute, Inc. (www.kamaron.org) today announced the 2005 “KC3™ Citizenship In Motion Award” national finalists.

“The purpose of creating this national award program is to recognize outstanding performance and achievement in area of positive citizenship. Our benchmark is implementation of the KC3™ Positive Label Certification Program,” says National Museum of Patriotism president and KC3™ Citizenship in Motion award program founder, Nick Snider.

“These school teams truly exemplify the concept of Citizenship in Motion,” says Margaret Ross, president of Kamaron Institute and KC3™ Program creator. “We congratulate each national finalist and commend them for the positive impact they are making in their communities,” adds Ross.

“The achievement level is outstanding,” observes Nick Snider. “Every school team exceeded all program goals and earned “outstanding” partnership scores.” Each finalist decreased name-calling by ten percent and increased kind words and cooperation by ten percent. Pre and post impact is measured in independent program surveys. “Many of these national finalists scored two and three times the national program requirement level,” says Jim Balster, Director, National Museum of Patriotism. All winning school groups followed best practices for implementation effective character education programs.

The Kamaron® Institute KC3™ Positive Label Program encourages partnership and community outreach. These partner organizations included school transportation groups, parent and community organizations, After School Programs, staff development, and student assistance programs, like C.A.R.E. (children at risk in education).

Finalists now advance to the competition’s KC3™ Case Study phase. This step provides finalists the opportunity to showcase their best practices. “KC3™ Case Study results along with program statistics will be combined and reviewed by the national judging panel to determine national winner group,” says Nick Snider. National winners will be announced in May. They will be recognized locally and will be guests of honor at the program Award Gala and ribbon cutting event to be held on June 2, 2005. Group names will become a permanent part of the museum’s new Casey KC3™ Citizenship Exhibit.
