“The DAR Good Citizens program is a great way to recognize young people who exhibit qualities of good citizenship in their homes, schools and communities,” DAR officials said in a press release. “The students selected by their schools is open to all high school seniors enrolled in public or private schools accredited by their state board of education.”

“The student selected as the school’s Good Citizen must have the following qualities: dependability (truthfulness, honesty, punctuality), service (cooperation, helpfulness, responsibility) and patriotism (unselfish loyalty to American ideals).”
