Chapter Community Programs
Each year Fort Stanwix Chapter awards prizes in the DAR Good Citizen Contest. Area high schools nominate a member of the senior class who then write a competitive essay. Prizes are awarded on the basis of the senior's essay, academic record, activities, and recommendations. The first place winner moves on for further consideration at state and national levels.
The JROTC Bronze Medal
Each year Fort Stanwix Chapter Awards the DAR Junior ROTC Bronze Medal to an RFA Junior or Senior, chosen by the Commanding Officer of the AF JROTC Unit, who exemplifies the characteristices of loyalty and patriotism and who has earned a record of military and scholastic achievement.
