THE 2014 DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED: POST MARK NO LATER THAN SATURDAY DECEMBER 6, 2014.
A longstanding mission of the DAR is to promote and further education. Annually, the NSDAR awards multiple scholarships to dedicated students across the United States. The Davie Poplar Chapter follows this exemplar and hosts an annual essay contest supported by the Sallie Markham Michie Trust (SMMT).
This year marks the seventeenth anniversary of the Sallie Michie Essay contest. The contest is a result of the generosity of the deceased Mrs. Michie and her strong desire to support local students as they gain knowledge and understanding of our country’s history, government and institutions, including the Constitution.
**All fifth through twelfth grade students who reside in Orange County and that portion of Chatham County that lies north of US Highway 64 and east of NC Highway 87 are eligible to compete in the contest.**
