One of the three missions of the DAR is to promote education for all Americans, especially children. Through a variety of National Society committees, including the American History Committee, DAR Good Citizens Committee, and Literacy Promotion Committee, the DAR seeks to help provide educational resources across a wide range of topics.
How Our Chapter Supports Education
Inspiring Our Youth
Tabitha Moffatt Brown-David Hill Chapter, NSDAR, is interested in partnering with your classroom in grades five through 12 for the American History Essay Contest. We support the Beaverton, Aloha, Forest Grove, and Hillsboro areas of Washington County. However, if you are not from our area, please contact us and we will help you find a chapter to partner with you. Please contact our regent if you would like to take part.
Paving the Way with Scholarships
Students in Washington County are highly encouraged to apply for one of the many college scholarships offered by NSDAR. The vast majority of NSDAR scholarships do not require membership in NSDAR. The NSDAR additionally offers scholarships to Native Americans. We encourage students and teachers to learn more here.
Supporting Our Teachers
Each year, our chapter has the opportunity to nominate an Outstanding Teacher in American History from our area. Our nominees are sent to the state contest, which is reviewed by outside professionals. The state winner competes against state winners across the United States. The national winner receives a trip to Washington, D.C., to receive the award.
To be eligible, the teacher would need to work in a middle school or high school and teach American history. Do you know of a good candidate for us to nominate? Please send your suggestions to our regent.
