DAR Good Citizens Award

Open to high school seniors who demonstrate the qualities of a good citizen, dependability, service, leadership, and patriotism, in their home, school, and community. Participants are selected by a panel of their school's faculty, and one senior is ultimately selected to be the school's "DAR Good Citizen." The contest then proceeds to local, state, and national competition.

We support DAR schools with money, and by mailing soup labels to them that they can exchange for needed items.
