"The Character Counts Show"


“The Character Counts Show” is an official “CHARACTER COUNTS! – Pillars of Character” school assembly. It’s an entertaining and motivational assembly performed by Obediah Thomas. Based on the principles outlined by the Josephson Institute, this interactive Los Angeles-based program inspires good behavior in K-6 school students. This engaging live show addressed Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Caring, Citizenship, and Fairness. This program provides a thought-provoking opportunity to launch a school-wide campaign to address manners and conduct. It is also ideal for a Red Ribbon Week presentation.

There are many interactive moments during the show when Obediah brings volunteers to the stage to help demonstrate good personal character. And as an ongoing thread during the show, Obediah has phone conversations with his (fictitious) mom. His mom reminds him to be responsible, respectful, and so forth. The kids in the audience absolutely love that!

Topics Addressed:

  • Trustworthiness

  • Respect

  • Responsibility

  • Caring

  • Citizenship

  • Fairness
