The DAR Good Citizen program and scholarship contest are intended to encourage and reward the qualities of good citizenship.

These qualities are service, dependability, leadership, and patriotism. The program is open to all senior-class students enrolled in accredited public or private schools. Congratulations to each of these remarkable students.
