DAR Good Citizenship Awards 2017

Congratulations to the following Winston County DAR Good Citizens for this year: Alicia Hopkins from Louisville High School, Livia Rose Bush from Nanih Waiya, Yolanda Mechele Cooper from Noxapater, Kaitlyn Elizabeth Dana from Winston Academy and Evelyn Phillips from Grace Christian School.
The Nanih Waiya Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution is sponsoring the DAR Good Citizens Program locally. The DAR Good Citizens program and scholarship contest is intended to encourage and reward the qualities of good citizenship. This program honors an outstanding young senior who best demonstrates the qualities of a good citizen –Dependability, Service, Leadership, and Patriotism—and provides an opportunity for this student to compete with other seniors in the district in the scholarship portion of the program.

Each school’s DAR Good Citizen receives a DAR Good Citizen pin, certificate, and wallet recognition card. This student is eligible to enter the DAR Good Citizens scholarship contest. By entering the contest, the student must write an essay to be judged for clarity of expression, originality, and historical accuracy. This year’s topic is “Our American Heritage and Our Responsibility for Preserving it.” The winner will receive a $300.00 scholarship.

DAR Good Citizens who enter the scholarship contest are eligible for awards beyond the chapter level. The Winston County winner will be announced at a later date.
