SBISD’s Character Without Question Award honors students who exhibit a variety of complimentary character traits and habits.

These include honesty and integrity, responsibility and dependability, respect, perseverance and effort, courage, caring and kindness, and citizenship and civic virtue. Students were nominated by a teacher, counselor, school administrator or another student. A panel of campus staff members interviewed nominees, asking them questions related to character, personal ethics and decision-making, and respect for others.

We invite you to take a moment to watch our winners as they share the character traits they are most proud of.
