The DAR Good Citizens program is a wonderful way to recognize outstanding young people who exhibit the qualities of good citizenship in their homes, schools, and communities.

The DAR Good Citizens program 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 Citizen must have the following qualities:

• Dependability (truthfulness, honesty, punctuality, etc.)

• Service (cooperation, helpfulness, responsibility, etc.)

• Leadership (personality, self-control, initiative, etc.)

• Patriotism (unselfish loyalty to American ideals)

The recommended procedure for selecting a DAR Good Citizen is for the faculty to choose three seniors who have demonstrated, in an outstanding way, these qualities of a good citizen. From these three students, the senior class selects one student. Each school may, however, use a method of its own choice. Each school may honor only one senior class student per year as its DAR Good Citizen.

Each school’s DAR Good Citizen receives a DAR Good Citizens pin, certificate, and wallet recognition card. This student is then eligible, if he/she wishes, to enter the DAR Good Citizens Scholarship Contest.
