Julia Hancock Chapter, DAR, announces Good Citizen awards

The Julia Hancock Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution would like to announce the 2016 Good Citizen winners selected by their respective schools. This committee was created in 1934 as the DAR Good Citizen Pilgrimage. In 1952 the name changed to DAR Good Citizen Committee. The purpose of the program is to recognize and reward seniors in high school that exemplify the qualities of a good citizen: dependability, service, leadership and patriotism.


Good Citizen recipients

The following students are Good Citizen award winners: Siri Pederson (Kris and Mike Pederson), Fergus High School; Brianna Roat (Birdie and Daniel Roat), Grass Range High School; Jessica Horan (Carla and Dan Horan), Moore High School; Orrin Daily (Shawn and Jen Dailey), Winnett High School; Kaylie Carlstrom (Kristin and Jonathan Carlstrom), Winifred High School; Cierra Hansen (Codi and Brian Hansen), Judith Gap High School; and Julia Tonne (Nancy Tonne), Stanford High School. 

These students excel in scholastic abilities while keeping a busy activity schedule.

This program is open to senior class students enrolled in accredited public or private schools. Each school chooses one of their students to honor as their Good Citizen. Each of these Good Citizens will be given a Good Citizen certificate, pin and wallet card.

These students’ entries have been sent to independent judges. They will be judged 70 percent on personal information provided by the student on how they exemplify the four qualities of a Good Citizen and 30 percent on a written essay. The subject of the essay is chosen by our national officers in Washington D.C. The winners of the scholarship – presented by the Rose Main Warden Scholarship Fund – will be announced at a later date. The first-place winner will be the recipient of $1,000 and the second-place winner will receive $500.
