The Winterville Police Department is proud to sponsor the Do The Right Thing Program. The program is designed to positively impact the youth of our area by publicly recognizing those who distinguish themselves through their behavior and/or accomplishments.
Each month, many children from Winterville can be nominated by police officers, the public and teachers such as you for the Do The Right Thing Award on the basis of their exemplary behavior and attitude. Monthly finalists are named and receive t-shirts and other prizes at a ceremony at your school with the Chief of Police. An overall monthly winner will receive additional prizes and recognition. They are also featured on our website and facebook and Twitter pages. You MUST use our online nomination process by logging onto our website, clicking on the “Nominate Today” button on the homepage and completing the form.
STEP 2: Make sure your DTRT Coordinator is aware of who you nominated and how many per month so they can keep track. PLEASE NOTE THAT EACH SCHOOL IS LIMITED TO 5 NOMINATIONS PER MONTH. ADDITIONALLY, NOMINATIONS MUST BE SPECIFIC AND A MINIMUM OF FOUR SENTENCES OR THEY WILL BE DECLINED.
We will notify your school’s DTRT Coordinator by email if you have a winner. The winners are announced at our monthly awards ceremonies at your school.
Thank you for your assistance in implementing the program and for helping your students “do the right thing!”
