Nationally, the Sons of the American Revolution honors the leadership development and public service commitment of young people with awards to about 2,500 Eagle Scouts, 2,500 JROTC cadets (high school), 500 ROTC cadets (college), and one senior at each of the U.S. military service academies (Army: West Point, Navy: Annapolis, Air Force: Colorado Springs, Coast Guard: New London).  We also provide opportunities for youths to participate in several local, North Carolina state, and national competitions designed to deepen their understanding and appreciation of our nation’s founding through expression in art, writing and oration.
