Show Me Character

Missouri 4-H encourages young people to show good character in all they do – to be respectful, to be responsible, to follow the rules – and they do just that!

Show Me Character is a framework that teaches young people to make sound moral judgments. Based on CHARACTER COUNTS® Six Pillars of Character, it also encourages all adults to become more involved in helping youth develop positive character traits. Our communities benefit when young people and adults understand the importance of being involved and caring citizens and “doing the right thing” in their daily lives.

Missouri’s 4-H families are encouraged to “Show Me Character” while involved in 4-H programs and as an essential part of daily life. Ask your child(ren) to tell you about the Six Pillars of Character!
