The purpose of Do The Right Thing of Miami, Inc. (DTRT) is to recognize and reward Miami youth for their exemplary behavior, accomplishments and good deeds. The DTRT Awards Program distinguishes exceptional school-age children who choose to be drug and crime free, exhibit non-violent behavior, do well in school, make a difference in their communities and demonstrate turnaround behavior. Each month of the school year, parents, police officers, teachers and other adults nominate up to 1,000 children for “doing the right thing.” A selection committee reviews the nominations and selects ten finalists for the month.
The final May tee shirt boxes were dropped off at School Mail on Friday, May 17th. Please expect them in no less than 2 weeks after the drop off date. Our goal is always to have them to you by the 20th of the following month however, School Mail is experiencing delays in deliveries so your patience is appreciated.
