knight essay contest

knight essay program

The National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) invites all high school students (9th through 12th grades) interested in the American Revolution to participate in the George S. & Stella M. Knight Essay Contest. The contest is open to all US Citizen and Legal Resident students attending home schools, public, parochial, or private high schools in that same grade range.

To participate, students must submit an original 800- to 1,200-word essay based on an event, person, philosophy or ideal associated with the American Revolution, Declaration of Independence, or the framing of the United States Constitution. Each student’s essay will be judged based upon its historical accuracy, clarity, organization, grammar and spelling, and documentation.

Your local entry is due by December 31, 2020 to the North Carolina Sons of the American Revolution!

Your contact in North Carolina is Stephen A. Morris stephenmorris-sar@nc.rr.com.

A complete set of rules and essay examples for the Knight Essay Contest can be found on the North Carolina state SAR website here.
