2019-2020 Theme:  “The 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment – American Women Rise and Shine.”

Junior American Citizens (JAC) is a program which offers several different awards which recognize students (grades pre-school-12) who demonstrate "good citizenship through service to God, Home, and Country; respect for the Flag of the United States of America; respect the history and government of the United States of America; and respect of ones self."
The JAC Contests are open to all pre-school through 12th grade students in public, private and parochial and in sanctioned home study programs, including those students who may be physically or mentally challenged or in Gifted/Talented programs. This contest is conducted without regard to gender, race, color, religion or national origin. Do not submit a student photograph with the entry.
For complete contest guidelines, contact the Junior American Citizens Committee National Chairman, or your local chapter.

JROTC

The Bronze JROTC Medal is awarded to either a junior or senior student in secondary school JROTC program or to a Junior College graduating senior (one medal per unit).  Medals are worn according to JROTC protocol.

DAR Good Citizen 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 ultimately selected to be the school's "DAR Good Citizen." The contest then proceeds to local, state, and national competition.

Youth Citizenship

The DAR Youth Citizenship Medal (formerly Good Citizenship Medal) is for a boy or girl in grades 5 through 11 (one medal per grade per school). The medal may also be awarded to youth service and patriotic organizations, whose membership fulfills the qualities of honor, service, courage, leadership, and patriotism, such as scouts, police cadets, and other community service organizations. The DAR Youth Citizenship Medal should be worn on the right (non-Insignia) side when worn by a NSDAR member.
