Congratulations to senior, Noah Becker on having his Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) essay selected as one of thirteen finalists for the state DAR essay award! All thirteen finalists will be recognized at an awards luncheon on Sunday, May 21st at the Indianapolis Marriott. The state winner will be announced at the luncheon.
The DAR Good Citizens Award and Scholarship Contest, created in 1934, is intended to encourage and reward the qualities of good citizenship.
The award recognizes and rewards students who possess the qualities of dependability, service, leadership, and patriotism in their homes, schools, and communities. These individuals are selected by their teachers and peers 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.
- Additional rules and guidelines can be acquired by contacting your local DAR chapter.
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.
We wish Noah well as he progresses in this competition!
