The Character Counts Award Program was developed to provide recognition to Youth, Teens, Adults and Organizations in Oswego or Montgomery that have exhibited and/ or best exemplify one of the six pillars of Character – Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship. The award recipients are nominated by people in the community through the submission of a Character Counts Award Nomination form located on this website. Award recipients are approved by the CC! Board and are typically given out quarterly at the Oswego Village Board meetings. The deadlines for the submission of the forms are printed on the form itself.
