California DAR awards


DAR Youth Citizenship Medal

The DAR Youth Citizenship Medal was established to foster, among schoolchildren, a greater appreciation of the qualities of citizenship Americans must possess if our country is to remain sovereign and independent. 

This medal is presented to students who exemplify the qualities of Honor, Service, Courage, Leadership, and Patriotism.  The program is open to students in grades 5-11. 

Our chapter focuses on 8th grade students in the Valley Center-Pauma Unified School District.  The award ceremony is held annually at the chapter's March meeting.
