The Americanism Elementary School Poster Contest is open to all 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students interested in the American Revolution to participate in. The contest is open to public school, parochial, home schooled, Scouting, or Children of the American Revolution member students in that same grade range. Young artists with an enthusiasm toward art, a love of American history, or a passion in creative expression submit their posters to their local SAR chapter for competition. While the Americanism Poster Contest begins at the local level, students’ masterpieces may eventually be judged and monetarily awarded at the national level in June at the annual SAR Congress. The theme for the Poster Contest rotates annually based upon whether the school year ends in an even or odd number.
