Building Blocks of Success

Building Blocks to Success campaign was developed by the IESA Sportsmanship Advisory committee. The campaign includes nine (9) character principles that the IESA sportsmanship advisory committee feels are key components to the development of Today's Youth and Tomorrow's Leaders. One of the nine character principles will be highlighted each month of the school year beginning in September and running through May.

The program is designed to be interactive with each of the Association's member schools. A downloadable certificate is available to administrators in the IESA Member Center. This certificate can be given to students for exemplifying each word of the month. Examples of ways to implement the words into the daily school life include:

Building Blocks to Success is another step in the Today's Youth Tomorrow's Leaders program offered by the IESA for member schools to implement in their existing sportsmanship programs. The program is a great way to showcase and reward your students. Send the IESA examples of ways you are implementing the Building Blocks to Success and we will share your stories online.

The nine (9) Building Block words and the months that will be highlighted are as follows:

September: Trustworthiness

October: Respect

November: Responsibility

December: Fairness

January: Caring

February: Citizenship

March: Integrity

April: Discipline

May: Teamwork
