"Do The Right Thing" awards K-12 students who strive to make good choices.

Smith Elementary and Rodger Bell New Tech Academy. A DTRT committee at each school will review nominees and select one from each school. The Finalist will be recognized at their school and receive a tee shirt with the "Do The Right Thing" logo on the front and "Do The Right Thing" sponsor name listed on the back. Finalists will also be recognized on the Craven County Sheriff's Office web page.
