Silver Good Citizenship Medal (Full Size) w/certificate & miniature medal
The Silver Good Citizenship Medal was authorized in 1939 and recognizes outstanding and unusual patriotic achievement and service that is of a more local degree (state level) than required for the Gold Good Citizenship Medal.
The medal is presented to persons of prominence in the areas of government (including military service), religion, education, business and the professions, and other appropriate fields of endeavor. Since it recognizes extensive service, a biographical sketch of the candidate should accompany the request for a medal.
In the case of a non-member, the qualifications are determined by the National Society or a state society. However, in the case of an SAR member, in order to have uniform criteria, the following requirements have been established. An SAR member shall have served in six leadership capacities in any of the following local organizations: Church, School, Scouting, Fraternal, Business Associations, Government, Patriotic, Military, Veterans, Conservation, Hereditary, Genealogical, Historical or organized Sports (Little League, etc.).
The Silver Good Citizenship Medal should not be used to recognize service to the SAR, which is recognized by the Meritorious Service Medal, State Medal of Distinguished Service, or Patriot Medal.
The Silver Good Citizenship Medal may be approved and presented by the National Society or a state society. It may be presented by a chapter with approval of its state society. It may only be presented once to an individual. A certificate suitable for engrossing is available. A miniature medal is also available.
There is no requirement that persons must be awarded a Bronze Good Citizenship Medal before they may be awarded a Silver Good Citizenship Medal.
This kit includes the full size medal, the miniature medal and a certificate.
