The Oklahoma Standard was born out of the overwhelming community response to the Oklahoma City bombing on April 19, 1995.

It lives on today as the model by which Oklahomans live their lives in response to the needs of their neighbors, fellow citizens, and communities. The foundation and significance of the Oklahoma Standard are its core values—SERVICE, HONOR and KINDNESS.

Through continued awareness, education, and the preservation of these values, the Oklahoma Standard unites the people of Oklahoma to build a bright future of caring citizens who actively serve the community, honor the past, and demonstrate kindness.
