The DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution) Good Citizens Award and Scholarship Contest, created in 1934, is intended to encourage and reward the qualities of good citizenship. Mike, our own 2015 Senior, was selected by the TCS faculty to participate this year. Congratulations to Mike for winning 2nd place in Lee County for the DAR Good Citizen Award! He attended an award ceremony to accept his award.
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 because they demonstrate these qualities to an outstanding degree.
- This program is only open to high-school seniors whose schools are accredited by their state board of education.
- Only one student per year may be honored as a school’s DAR Good Citizen.
- United States citizenship is not required
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.
