Be the Change

Help us recognize as many students as possible who are making positive contributions in the Bethlehem Central community. If you are a teacher, administrator, counselor, student, coach, staff or community member, you can nominate students for acts of kindness or for simply displaying good character. Each month, students will be nominated based on character strengths that are designated for that particular month. Additionally, a few of the nominated students will be randomly selected each month and presented with a prize donated by an area business.

Promote an even more positive culture in our community! Submit your online nomination form here.


The following community businesses have joined as partners in Be the Change by providing gift cards for our student winners. Thank you to them for their support! If you know of a business who would like to become a Be the Change sponsor, please contact Nicole Conway by email at or by phone at (518) 439-4921.
