Woman in American History Recognition
March 1, 2023
The emphasis of the Woman in American History award is on the role of women, past and present, in American history. Chapters are encouraged to select a notable woman from their community to honor. She could be a historical entity or currently alive and worthy of recognition. Look for women who are, or have been, intellectual, educational, social, religious, political, scientific, or cultural innovators in your local communities. The woman or women being honored may be DAR members, prospective DAR members, or non-members. You may select more than one woman to honor each year!
The Donnelly Administration challenges you to honor one Woman in American History!
- Chapters are advised to contact the State Chair prior to honoring a Woman in American History. The National Society would like to ensure unique and deserving women are honored by preventing duplicates.
- Each chapter should submit a photograph, if available, and prepare a 100-word report about their Woman in American History by completing the AHC-1006 form.
- These reports may be sent throughout the year, but the year-end deadline is March 1st.
- A database of women honored is compiled from these reports and published on dar.org , with quarterly updates introducing a new class of Women in American History!
All submissions and questions should be directed to:
ASDAR American History Chair, Melanie R. Pepper
