The Education Committee of the Philadelphia Continental Chapter exists for the purpose of promoting excellence in the teaching of American History of the Revolutionary War period, and promoting good citizenship and patriotism in Delaware Valley area schools. The Committee pursues these objectives through two programs.
Outstanding American History Teacher Award Program. The Committee seeks out and recognizes teachers in elementary or secondary education, from any public or private (including parochial) school, who have demonstrated excellence in the teaching of American History of the Revolutionary War period, specifically by teaching and demonstrating in an effective and creative way that:
All citizens of the United States of America have an obligation to the heroes of the American Revolution, who by their sacrifices established the United States of America and gave us our Constitution, the Bill of Rights, an independent Supreme Court, and a Nation of Free Men.
Since this program was started in 1997, the Chapter has recognized 42 outstanding American History Teachers, representing 28 schools in the Delaware Valley.
Student Good Citizenship Program. Students from secondary schools in the Delaware Valley who demonstrate outstanding citizenship and patriotism are eligible to receive the SAR Good Citizenship Certificate, Gold Lapel Pin and the Chapter's Leadership medallion. Since 1998, the Chapter has awarded Good Citizenship Awards to 51 students who represent 30 schools in the Delaware Valley.
