The Andrew Jackson Chapter SAR recognizes leaders in our community through award ceremonies and contests. AJSAR commends outstanding ROTC cadets, Eagle Scouts as well as first responders, military and veterans.
AJSAR also administers contests for Nashville area elementary through high school students organized by age group. Winners are also submitted to Tennessee Society SAR who in turn submits winners to National Society SAR for additional opportunities to be recognized. Available prizes are $6,000 for the winning essay and $6,000 for the winning oration. All participants will benefit from practice in research, knowledge of the foundations of our nation, and experience in life skills.
