Knight Essay Scholarship Contest

The Delta Chapter is proud to support the SAR Knight Essay Contest. This contest, established in 1988, was originally named in honor of SAR Compatriot Calvin Coolidge who won an SAR essay contest while a student at Amherst College. Its name was changed to the George S. and Stella Knight Essay Contest in 1995. The purpose of the contest is to encourage patriotism in young people.

The contest is open to all high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors. The Delta Chapter awards a scholarship each year to a high school student in a local high school. The winning essays from the Delta Chapter and other California Chapters are forwarded to the California State Society, where they again compete. The essay judged best by the California State Society receives a cash award and is forwarded to the National Knight Essay Contest Committee, where the final selection is made. Each participant in the national contest receives a certificate awarded by NSSAR. The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners receive cash awards.

The Knight Essay Scholarship contest is a National program. For more information, please contact us or see the National Society's Knight Essay Contest webpage.

Recent first place winner of the Delta Chapter and also the first place winner at the Califorina Society SAR Annual Meeting was Vivian Kellner of Central Catholic High School in Modesto.
