DAR Good Citizens

The DAR Good Citizens Award and Scholarship Contest, created in 1934, is intended to encourage and reward the qualities of good citizenship.

This award recognizes and rewards individuals who possess the qualities of dependability, service, leadership, and patriotism in their homes, schools, and communities. These students are selected by their teachers and peers because they demonstrate these qualities to an outstanding degree.

  • This program is open to high-school seniors whose schools are accredited by their state board of education.

  • One student per year may be honored as a school's DAR Good Citizen.

  • United States citizenship is not required.

  • Additional rules and guidelines can be acquired by contacting Mary Fell Stevenson Chapter NSDAR.

Once a student is chosen as the DAR Good Citizen the student is invited to participate in the scholarship portion of the program. This consists of a personal statement and an essay. Student participation in the scholarship portion of the program is optional.
