Jackson students awarded scholarships through Daughters of American Revolution

JACKSON, Wyo. — The Davey Jackson Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (“D.A.R.”) has recognized several college-bound seniors who submitted winning essays that described how the U.S. Constitution affected them personally. The essays, 350-400 words in length, demonstrated personal knowledge of the Constitution, as well as two or more Constitutional Amendments and the Bill of Rights.

The essays, submitted through an anonymous process, were awarded based solely on the quality of their entries, as judged by the Chapter’s Scholarship Committee.

The Good Citizenship Award is decided by the Faculty at Jackson Hole High School, and not by an essay submission or application from a student.

The following students were awarded: 

1st Place Essay: John Brown $3,000

2nd Place Essay: Tilli Rosetti $2,000

3rd Place Essay: Chloe Stines $500

4th Place Essay: Brooklyn McCooey $500

Good Citizenship Award: Annika Peacock $250

The Daughters of the American Revolution, founded in 1890 and headquartered in Washington, DC, is a nonprofit, non-political, volunteer women’s lineage organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America’s future through better education for children.
