SAR JROTC CADET RECOGNITION PROGRAMS
Separate and distinct from the JROTC Bronze Medal awards is the Enhanced JROTC Essay Competition. This competition is conducted on the Chapter, State and National levels. Entering criteria are identical to the JROTC Bronze Medal award, but in addition, cadets are asked to write an original essay on the impact of JROTC on their American Citizenship. An exhaustive application listing cadet activities and achievements, plus letters of recommendation from the school Principal and the unit’s Senior Military Instructor complete the entrant’s package. Winners are judged at the Chapter level, and all Chapter winners are judged at State level. The State winner is then entered into the National SAR Competition to compete against all State winners.
Winners will receive appropriate SAR Bronze, Silver and Gold Outstanding Cadet Medals for Chapter, State and National level wins, respectively, and monetary awards designated by the Chapter, State and National State and National and Washington State awards are listed below.
