The Terrific Kids Program

Terrific Kids a character development program

The Kiwanis Club of Spartanburg sponsors the The Terrific Kids Program program in over 50 schools in our community.  Over 10,000 students receive this recognition each year and the top terrific kid in each school attends our annual Terrific Kids banquet in the spring.  Terrific Kids is a student-recognition program that promotes character development, self-esteem and perseverance. “Terrific” is an acronym for Thoughtful, Enthusiastic, Respectful, Responsible, Inclusive, Friendly, Inquisitive and Capable.   Students work with their classroom teacher to establish goals to improve behavior, peer relationships, attendance or school work.  All students who achieve their goals after a specified time are recognized as Terrific Kids. Recognition includes being pinned as a Terrific Kid; free meal at Zaxby's and presentation of certificates, coveted bumper sticker and other giveaways.    We'd like to thank  Zaxby's for their strong support of this great program.
Here's An article from our 2013 Teriffic kids Luncheon with over 350 in attendance. One of our best programs ever.
