SAR Outstanding JROTC Cadet Award
This award for high-school juniors fosters the principle of "citizen soldier" as exemplified by the American Revolution's Minuteman. The process of selection begins with the JROTC Unit’s Senior Military Instructor (SMI). Qualified cadets are then selected through Chapter, State Society, and National Society levels of the contest competition. Selection criteria include demonstrated leadership potential, military bearing, and scholastic achievement. Each cadet must submit an original essay on a topic designated by the ROTC/JROTC & Services Academy Liaison Committee.
