The Character Council started in 1999 in Hamburg by parents in the wake of the Columbine shootings. There are 38 schools that are a member of the council, but they also promote character in the Business Community, Government entities, and Faith-based groups. They offer 3 scholarships of $1000 to high school students that exemplify core values. They also offer grants of materials and $250 to each of the Hamburgs schools and 1 of the Faith-based organizations. More information can be found at www.charactercouncilwny.org.
