The SAR is an all male lineage, historical, educational, and patriotic non-profit, United States 501(c)3, corporation that seeks to maintain and extend

    *  the institutions of American freedom
    *  an appreciation for true patriotism
    *  a respect for our national symbols
    *  the value of American citizenship
    *  the unifying force of e pluribus unum that has created, from the people of many nations, one    nation and one people.

We do this by perpetuating the stories of patriotism, courage, sacrifice, tragedy, and triumph of the men who achieved the independence of the American people in the belief that these stories are universal ones of man's eternal struggle against tyranny, relevant to all time, and will inspire and strengthen each succeeding generation as it too is called upon to defend our freedoms on the battlefield and in our public institutions.

Contests & Education Programs

Americanism Elementary School Poster and Middle School Brochure Contests
Chairman: Larry D. Sturgeon (FLSSAR_Withlacoochee_Chapter@Hotmail.com)

The Americanism Elementary Poster and Middle School Brochure Contests have been a great youth venue for stimulating Revolutionary War period history in our students. The Poster Contest is for elementary students in the 3rd, 4th and 5th grades and the Brochure Contest is for Middle School 6th, 7th and 8th grades. For the Poster Contest, State Societies can pick their own contest theme. Academic years ending in even numbers shall be “Revolutionary War Events” and for odd number academic years the theme shall be “Revolutionary War Person or Persons”. As information, our very good 2018 FLSSAR entries for the Poster Contest, Charlotte Sandoval, Lake-Sumter Chapter, won 3rd Place at National Congress in Houston. The NSSAR Brochure 7th Place winner, Deshani C. Hettiarachchi, Jacksonville Chapter, received Honorable Mention. Both FLSSAR participants were well recognized for their talent.

NSSAR Poster State winners at Congress in Houston were:
Winning Poster at 2018 Congress, 1st Place, Louisiana Society, Attakapas Chapter, Student-Andrew Menard, 2nd Place, Ohio Society, Cincinnati Chapter, Student-Brooklynn Smith, 3rd Place Tie, Florida Society, Lake-Sumter Chapter, Student-Charlotte Sandoval, Maryland Society, Col. Aquilla Chapter, Student-Nandini Raju.

NSSAR Brochure State winners at Congress in Houston were:
Winning Brochure at 2018 Congress, 1st California, 2nd Ohio and 3rd Georgia. NSSAR Brochure contest winners are as follows, 1st PLACE, N Carolina, Halifax Resolves, Madison B. Elias, 2nd PLACE, Indiana, Anthony Halberstadt, Tori M. Fredland, 3rd PLACE, Maryland, Col Aquilla Hall, Ava McCoy-Johnson, HONORABLE MENTION, Alabama, Tennessee Valley, William Pacillo, HONORABLE MENTION, Arizona, Saguaro, Triston L. Turlington, HONORABLE MENTION, California, Mother Lode, Beth A. Myers, HONORABLE MENTION, Florida, Jacksonville, Deshani C. Hettiarachchi, HONORABLE MENTION, Georgia, Piedmont, Grace Hargett, HONORABLE MENTION, Kansas, Monticello, Katrina Barragree, HONORABLE MENTION, Kentucky, Simon Kenton, Amelia Brun, HONORABLE MENTION, Massachusetts, Old Middlesex, Taryn Holmes, HONORABLE MENTION, Michigan, West Michigan, Alice Jane Kraatz, HONORABLE MENTION, Missouri, Fernando de Leyba, Jack Guenther, HONORABLE MENTION, Ohio, Cincinnati, Madelyn E. Torrans, HONORABLE MENTION, Pennsylvania, Philadelphia Cont’l, Mackenzie Cassidy, HONORABLE MENTION, S Carolina, Maj Robert Crawford, Cameron B. Long, HONORABLE MENTION, Texas, Capt. Wm. Barron, Frances M. Foley, HONORABLE MENTION, Virginia, James Monroe, Virginia Trible.
   
Poster Contest:
Accordingly, for FLSSAR 2018-2019 the Poster Contest Revolutionary War Person or Persons theme will be “James Madison and Our Nation’s Founding Documents”. As before, I would suggest the Chapter winner deadline date of April 2019. For the FLSSAR contest the chapter winning posters (22 X 28 inches) will need to be brought or mailed to the Annual FLSSAR meeting by Friday Morning for judging. Please make sure Chairman Sturgeon receives an original plus two copies of the entry form for the winning chapter poster. Attach the original to the back of the poster with two pieces of tape and Mr. Sturgeon will mail one copy to the National Chairman and the other copy to NSSAR HQ before June 1. For more details and entry forms go to:  www.sar.org/Americanism-elementary-school-poster-contest. Next year our FLSSAR Poster theme for 2019 - 2020 the Revolutionary War Event will be “The Battle of Thomas Creek, or the Thomas Creek Massacre (May 17, 1777)”.

Brochure Contest: (The Sgt. Moses Adams Memorial Middle School Contest)
Again, the theme for the Brochure contest is different than the poster contest and centers around the 8th grade curriculum where American History is normally taught in middle school. Submission is on an 8 ½ X 11 piece of paper that is created into a tri-fold brochure. The brochure will be judged on student art and student authored theme text. Material cut and pasted from books, magazines and the internet will be accepted but will receive a lower grade than students who have personally drawn, which is highly valued. Our FLSSAR submission deadline from individual chapter winners will need to be mailed or emailed to me by the end of April 2019. I will then email all chapter entries to our FLSSAR judges for their review and scoring. Hopefully, by the middle of May, I will be able to forward by email our FLSSAR State Brochure winner to our National Brochure Chairman Tom Adams. Chairman Adams will then repeat the process for all the state winners to all the NSSAR judges to have a winner for final evaluation at the 129th Congress in Costa Mesa, California, July 2019. For more details and entry forms go to:  www.sar.org/education/youth-contests-and-awards.

“The permanent Middle School Brochure Contest theme that began with the 2016-2017 academic term will always be "The Foundational Documents of the United States". Choose from any of the below (5) FIVE. The theme for the Brochure Contest is structured to match up with the Government curricula found in many states during the middle school years. The students will be encouraged to pick a founding document and produce a brochure within the established criteria. This will eliminate the need to revisit the theme on an annual basis while providing a large amount of flexibility to adapt to the established curricula.”
This model will make it easier for Chapter Youth Contest Chairmen to find classroom teachers who can blend our contest into their history lesson plans.
 
  These (5) FIVE documents include:

  • Articles of Confederation
  • Bill of Rights
  • Constitution
  • Declaration of Independence 
  • Federalist Papers

The Knight Essay Contest was originally named in honor of SAR Compatriot President Calvin Coolidge who won an SAR essay contest while a student at Amherst College.  The contest was reestablished in 1988 by Compatriot McCarthy DeMere.  In 1995, the contest was renamed the “George S. and Stella M. Knight Essay Contest” in honor of their generous gift to the National Society to support this contest.  The contest is designed to give High School students an opportunity to explore the early events that shaped American Revolutionary History.  

The Florida Society has conducted a contest nearly every year since the National program was established. In recent years, the state committee has taken steps to improve the contest, concentrating on making it easier for students to enter. The committee is open to suggestions for improving the contest.

Getting Started:
      Sometimes the hardest part in getting started is coming up with a topic for your essay. Perhaps the easiest approach is to pick some aspect of the American Revolution you found particularly interesting when you studied it in school.

       There are any number of very interesting characters in the drama of our revolution. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, and John Adams come immediately to mind, but you might find that an essay written about a lesser known individual might be more interesting to you and, hopefully, more interesting to the judges.

       Events also are appropriate so any battle of the revolution is up for consideration. An analysis of the success or failure of tactics and strategies can make for a good essay thesis. But the revolution was more than battles. John Adam’s defense of the British soldiers charged in the Boston Massacre is just one example.

       If you like to “think the big thoughts” you might pursue a thesis on the ideals of the revolution. For some students this approach would be difficult but perhaps you enjoy philosophy and can articulate this type of topic well.

       So, give it some thought. Talk to your history teacher and parents. Do some brainstorming.  Then outline your essay before you write your first draft.

       The rest is basically research and proper writing. MLA Documentation:   The essay and bibliography must be documented with the rules found on the NSSAR website.  If the acceptable listings there are not available, give consideration to Modern Language Association publication, MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (see www.mla.org) or Kate L. Turabian's publication "A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Thesis and Dissertations."

      If you need assistance with the proper formatting of your essay and the bibliography here are two suggestions that might help:

 1. Your high school English teacher: He/she may help you with formatting and likely be able to make some suggestions that will improve the writing and content of your essay. It is always a good idea to have someone proof read your work.
2. Run a web search on “MLA Documentation”. You’ll find many fine websites that give all the information you’ll need for your essay. Here’s one that we thought was helpful: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/557/01/

This award may be presented by the state society or a chapter to students completing the application and presenting the oral dissertation. The Purpose Of The National Contest is:

    • To support historical research in our high schools by promoting oratorical presentations related to our Revolutionary War period 1750-1800.

    • To emphasize American History to the high school student and focus on and intelligent relationship between the past and the present.

    • To place a positive emphasis on the plans of our founding fathers.
    Preliminary rounds are held by Chapters and State Societies (prior to contestants advancing to final judging at the NSSAR National Congress) to select one winner from each participating state. In regions (SAR Districts) where no State Society sponsors an entrant, an SAR District entry is permitted. Prizes may be awarded to winners of Chapter and State Society (or District) competitions. The State or District sponsor is responsible for informing the contestant how expenses of competing at the National Level will be made. For example, travel, hotel for two evenings and meal expense.

Minuteman Award

DISTINGUISHED RECIPIENTS
OF THE
Minuteman Medal

The Minuteman Award is the highest award presented to a member by the National Society. It is presented for active and distinguished service rendered to the SAR at the national level. Annually at the Spring Leadership Meeting, the Minuteman Committee, which is composed of members holding the award, will select no more than six award recipients for the current year and announce those selected at the meeting. The President General appoints the Minuteman Committee. The award was authorized in 1952 and consists of a rectangular medal, struck in sterling silver suspended from a neck ribbon of light blue silk. The obverse depicts a Minuteman holding a rifle with a plow in the background along with the Liberty Bell. The reverse is inscribed "Highest Award of the National Society Sons of the American Revolution. Presented to (Name, Year)." The medal is accompanied by a certificate. A miniature version is available. The President General presents the award during the Minuteman Ceremony at each Annual Congress. At that ceremony, all previous recipients of the award in attendance, dressed in white dinner jackets, are seated on the dais. The new honorees are escorted to the dais by a previous recipient of the Minuteman Award chosen by the honoree. The Minuteman Award is awarded only to individual members on a onetime basis. It is not presented in absentia.

A nominee must have a minimum of five years of active and distinguished service to the National Society. He must have served at least three years in a National elective office (General Officer, Vice President General, Trustee, or Alternate Trustee); as well as having served as a Committee or Task Force Chairman/Vice Chairman for at least three years. All requirements should be thoroughly reviewed before making the nomination
