Youth Contests


Sons of the American Revolution sponsors several contests for youths.  These contests encourage the study of eighteenth-century American history and are open to youths attending public and private schools as well as homeschooled students. Participation in the contests always begins at the chapter-level, with first place finishers moving on to participate in the state contests with the possibility of further advancement to the national contests.


Below appear brief descriptions of the youth contests.  Each contest has a set of strict rules and guidelines, and it is critical that participants refer to the official contest guidelines at the links provided.  






The Smallwood Chapter awards cash prizes for winning entries.  To submit an entry or obtain more information, please send an email to william-smallwood@mdssar.org.
