Chapters are encouraged to choose a woman to honor for the DAR Women in American History Award by taking into consideration women who have contributed or made a difference in their communities. She could be a historical entity or currently alive and worthy of recognition. Look for women who are, or have been, intellectual, educational, social, religious, political, scientific, or cultural innovators. The woman or women being honored may be DAR members, prospective DAR members, or non-members.
Submit nominations to the American History State Chair and receive approval prior to purchasing the certificate.
This Women in American History Award is sold as a set that includes an 8” x 10” certificate with the DAR Insignia and "National Society Daughters of the American Revolution" embossed in black ink and a bronze medal on a red, white, and blue ribbon. Add the chapter name and signature of the chapter regent to the certificate before presenting it.
