Abendschone Chapter NSDAR presented their annual DAR Good Citizens awards to local high school seniors on Thursday, February 8, 2018, at Cornerstone Bank in Berryville.
The DAR Good Citizens program and Scholarship Contest is intended to encourage and reward the qualities of good citizenship. The program is open to all high school seniors enrolled in public or private schools accredited by their state board of education. United States citizenship is not required. The student selected as the school’s DAR Good Citizens must have the following qualities: dependability, service, leadership, and patriotism.
Each school’s DAR Good Citizen’s Award winner receives a DAR Good Citizens pin, certificate, wallet recognition card, and a cash reward. This student is then eligible, if he/she wishes, to enter the DAR Good Citizens Scholarship Contest. Each contest entry is evaluated by independent, non-DAR judges. The winning entry is advanced through state and national levels of judging.
