PACE is a grassroots Spokane Valley initiative to promote the importance of good character through partnerships with schools, businesses, public agencies, residents, faith-based organizations and community service groups.

At the root of the initiative is a list of monthly character traits. Partners work from this common list, and promote and integrate each trait into the regular activities of the organization.PACE features a different character trait each month to be the focus of multi-faceted communication, motivation and educational programs throughout the entire month.

Nominate a PACE Partner for “Best Practices”

More than 138 businesses, organizations and schools count themselves as Partners Advancing Character Education. With so many great partners, there are awesome character education activities that go unnoticed. The PACE Awards is the one time of year to truly bring character to light, and PACE is proud to announce that it will be recognizing the contributions of PACE Partners during the PACE Awards on May 29.

But we need your help!

Consider nominating a PACE Partner who promotes and integrates the monthly character traits into the regular activities of their organization. Nominate a Partner by filling out this form. By highlighting best practices, we hope to encourage others and share ideas on how to promote character education. It’s just one way PACE aims to celebrate good character, while at the same time, spreading it around for everyone to appreciate and learn from others.
