We believe character is an important component to Leadership. Character Keys are presented throughout the Leadership Seminole sessions. The Keys are respect, honesty, courage, gratitude, generosity, caring, knowledge, fairness, patriotism, service, responsibility and courtesy.


The annual High School Video Contest Awards incorporates the most critical issues facing high school students. Based on two separate surveys (2009, 2010) of Seminole County high school students, the issues include drug and alcohol abuse, bullying, body image, conflict resolution, and depression.

All nine Seminole County public high schools have the opportunity participate in the contest. The nine competing videos are shown with the student teams and faculty advisers in attendance at the annual High School Character Video Awards in April. The top three winners are announced. Each member of the winning team, their faculty adviser and their school receive recognition and a trophy. The videos are shown throughout the Seminole County public school system. The end result is students messaging to students.

The winning video then premiers at the annual Community Leadership Celebration Luncheon in May, which attracts more than 400 attendees. The students and their faculty advisers are introduced and recognized.

Lyman High School was the Leadership Seminole 2019 High School Character Video Contest winner. Watch their masterpiece here.

Our next Contest will happen in the Spring of 2022 thanks to our generous sponsors.
