Character Counts When Students 'Be Like the Coyotes'


The University of South Dakota is teaming up with area elementary schools to 'Be Like the Coyotes' and engage students with a fun project that reinforces character education.   Each letter of "Coyotes" represents a specific character value and when students 'Be Like the Coyotes,' their behavior is recognized on a flat Charlie Coyote which is then displayed at their school.

C.O.Y.O.T.E.S.:

School Programs:

'Be Like the Coyotes' continues in the fall.  A flat Charlie will visit high schools during Homecoming to "live" the student body experience at their school for a week. Students will have an opportunity to submit photos of their adventures with Charlie and selected photos will be entered into a best picture contest online where students can vote for their favorite adventure.
