In preparation for the 250th anniversary of the nation’s founding, the DAR has launched the “Patriots of the American Revolution DAR High School Essay Contest.” This contest will focus on the men and women who figured in the events of the American Revolution (1773 – 1783), and it is hoped that students will find Patriots to write about who will interest and inspire them.

Essays from students from all grades will be judged together, with one winning essay chosen at each level- Chapter, State, Divisional, and National. Local essay deadline is December 5, 2022. Please contact for more information and contest rules.
