The National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) sponsors several annual awards programs that allow students and educators to become more involved and engaged in the American Revolutionary period. These awards encourage civic responsibility and duty, creative and effective teaching practices for the classroom, and a deeper understanding of the complicated issues surrounding the war for American independence. Many of these youth programs begin at the local SAR chapter level and move along toward the society and national level during the scope of each annual competition, wrapping up at the annual SAR Congress.

Visitors interested in learning more about the individual award details should consult the links on this web page. Further information, specific guidelines, and deadlines can be found by contacting the respective contest’s point of contact, found on that contest’s page. Thank you for your participation in the SAR Youth Awards programs and good luck!

The program brochure, created by the Youth Awards Council, is now available below.  Members can order a hard copy of the brochure or download the material onto personal thumb drives to print at their convenience. The SAR Outreach Education Program recommends that the brochure be printed in full color on 100# Gloss Text (8.5″ x 14″ Double Parallel Format). The brochure offers SAR members the ability to customize the Youth Awards program brochure by providing contact information relevant to their local chapter or state-level society. An editable “content area” section is identified on the brochure. Those members choosing to order a hard copy can use the “content area” to place labels bearing their relevant SAR information directly onto the brochure. To order hard copies of or obtain additional information about the Youth Awards program brochure, please contact Ms. Colleen Wilson at or (502) 588-6129.
