The Grand Canyon Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution from Scottsdale, annually recognizes students and educators.

Contests and awards are given yearly by the National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) based in Washington D.C. The 165-member chapter led by Regent Karen Andrews has held an awards ceremony or luncheon in March for years as students, educators attend with parents or guests.

Last year, Maeve Lomax of Chaparral High School was recognized by the chapter, state, division, and nationally as the Good Citizen of 2020 for NSDAR, according to a press release.

The 2021 award winners from the Grand Canyon Chapter of the NSDAR are:

Good Citizen:

  • Diya Sirvan Kutur Reddy, Chaparral High School senior nominated by Tammy Anderson, CHS college and career counselor

American History Essay Contest:

  • Fifth grade: Will Ross, Kiva Elementary School
  • Seventh grade: Miriam Krist, Mohave Middle School
  • Eighth grade: Cooper Davidson, Desert Canyon Middle School

This year, due to the pandemic, awards will be presented at the schools and at a spring zoom meeting of the chapter, the release said.

Recipients will receive a NSDAR Certificate and pin or medal. The winners from the chapter will be judged at the state level for additional recognition.
