Our latest Do the Right Thing Award winner is a third grader from School 33 in Rochester.

Giankarlos Rodriguez found $50 on the floor during art class. Instead of keeping it, he turned the money over to the substitute teacher. The money actually belonged to the full-time art teacher.

The teacher was looking for it and the substitute teacher was able to present him with the money.

"It wasn't mine and I had to return it because it wasn't my money," says Giankarlos.

The third grader acted according to his school's values of humility and kindness. He was honored with a Do the Right Thing Award for his honest actions in returning the found money to its rightful owner.
