Queen Anne's County
Character Counts!

All children and youth need caring, supportive adults in their lives in order to become responsible, productive citizens in their community. The Queen Anne's County Character Counts! initiative places community volunteers in classrooms to deliver lessons on the pillars of character to have the largest possible impact on the youth of Queen Anne's County.

The pillar of the month for JULY is... CITIZENSHIP!


  • Do your share to make your home, school, and community better.

  • Cooperate.

  • Stay informed. Vote.

  • Be a good neighbor.

  • Make choices that protect the safety and rights of others.

  • Protect the environment.

CITIZENSHIP discussion starters...

  • What is social responsibility? Is that a noun or a verb?

  • How can you make a difference in your community? What are your first steps?
