The Program

Our elementary school, character education program centers around a 45 minute assembly called The NED Show. NED is a loveable cartoon character whose name is an acronym for Never give up, Encourage others, and Do your best. Teachers love that NED is simple, relatable and kid-focused.

To help carry the NED character traits beyond the school, we also offer free printables that can be used at home. Take a look


A stand-out part of The NED Show’s 25 year heritage is the use of yo-yo tricks during the assembly performance. In addition to helping our program visit schools without impacting their budget, this classic skill toy also makes NED’s story and message entertaining and unforgettable in the mind of a child.

Our pre-K through 5th grade students are still talking about The NED Show. When my teachers are as excited as the children,
I know we have hit the right formula.
