National Museum of Patriotism Kamaron Institute Announce National Citizenship Winners
Atlanta, GA - The National Museum of Patriotism (www.museumofpatriotism.org) and the Kamaron Institute (www.kamaron.org) today released the names of the 2005 “KC3™ Citizenship In Motion Award” national winners.
Citizenship Champions named today were selected from schools who earned the highest cumulative scores on the Case Study phase combined with the highest program performance scores. National winners will be honored in Atlanta on June 2, 2005 at an Award Gala and Ribbon Cutting event to be held at the National Museum of Patriotism.
“The Winners’ names “in lights” will become a permanent part of the museum’s new Casey KC3™ Citizenship Exhibit,” says National Museum of Patriotism president and award program founder, Nick Snider. The new exhibit will open to the public on June 4, 2005.
KC3™ Positive Label Program, offered through the Kamaron® Institute, is designed to teach children that words are powerful tools that can have either a positive or negative effect. KC3™ stands for Kamaron® Concept Three, which states, “Labels Change Lives”, and is the program motto.
“The achievement level was outstanding,” observes Nick Snider. “Every winning school team exceeded all program goals and earned outstanding partnership scores.” National champions decreased name-calling by more than thirty percent and increased kind words and cooperation by fifty percent as measured in pre and post independent program surveys.
“All winners followed guidelines for an effective Character Education program" says Margaret S. Ross, president of Kamaron Institute and KC3™ Program creator. “This behavior change translates to increased classroom teaching times, an improved school environment, and safer buses,” says Margaret Ross.
“The purpose of creating this national award program is to recognize outstanding performance and achievement in the area of positive citizenship. Our benchmark is implementation of the KC3™ Positive Label Certification Program. We salute the national champions and their communities,” notes Snider.
“These school teams truly exemplify the concept of Citizenship in Motion and provide role models for the nation" says Jim Balster, executive director of The National Museum of Patriotism. “The Kamaron® Institute Positive Label Program encourages partnership, citizenship, and community outreach. We are about educating our country’s youth, celebrating personal achievement, motivating people to respect the rights of others, and inspiring good. It is a powerful partnership,” concludes Balster.
