ST. IGNATIUS — The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Good Citizens program and scholarship contest is intended to encourage and reward the qualities of good citizenship. The program is open to all senior class students enrolled in accredited public or private schools that are in good standing with their State Board of Education. The student is selected as the school’s DAR Good Citizen by the high school staff and must have the qualities of dependability (which includes truthfulness, loyalty, and punctuality); service (which includes cooperation, courtesy and consideration of others); leadership (which includes personality self-control and ability to assume responsibility); and patriotism (which includes unselfish interest in family, school, community and nation) to and outstanding degree. Each one of these area students exemplifies these qualities. 

There was a total of seven area students that were honored Saturday, Jan. 19, by the Kuilix Chapter of DAR at the Mission Valley United Methodist Church in St. Ignatius. They each received a Good Citizen certificate and pin, a money award, and a delicious lunch. 

This year’s winner of the Good Citizen and Scholarship contest was Aaliyah Decker from Ronan High School. She received $500 from the Kuilix Chapter and her application, along with the winning essay, was advanced to the state level. Second place and a $250 award was given to Vanessa Horner of Noxon High School, and third place and $150 was awarded to Ben Croft of Thompson Falls High School.  

Honorable Mention winners are McKirah Fisher of Arlee High School, Kyla Tomlin of Charlo High School, Brookelyn Slonaker of Polson High School, Kaylah Standeford of Plains High School. They each received an award gift of $25, along with a Good Citizen Certificate and pin.

The Daughters of the American Revolution is a volunteer service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American History and securing American’s future through better education for children. For more information about DAR contact or go online.
