The Roger Sherman Medal may be awarded to SAR members who have rendered faithful service to their chapter, state society, or to the National Society over multiple years. This medal is awarded for significant service which lacks the requirements for the Meritorious Service Medal.

Suggested minimum Eligibility Guidelines: Served as an active Officer for a minimum of two (2) years, or Served as an active Committee Chairman for a minimum of three (3) years, or Served as an active Committee Member for a period of four (4) years. Officers, Committee Chairmen, and Committee Members must have actively served. Only active service should be taken into account for awarding this medal.

Unlike the Meritorious Service Medal, an SAR member may receive the Roger Sherman Medal more than once via the Bronze Oak Leaf Cluster for an additional two (2) years or more of outstanding active service to the National Society, State Society or Chapter after the presentation of the compatriot’s first Roger Sherman Medal. The service is counted cumulatively rather than consecutively, and may not be added concurrently for multiple offices, committee chairmanships, or committee membership.

This Medal is named after Roger Sherman (April 19, 1721 – July 23, 1793) was an early American lawyer and politician, as well as a founding father. He served on the Committee of Five that drafted the Declaration of Independence, and was also a representative and senator in the new republic. He was the only person to sign all four great state papers of the U.S.: the Continental Association, the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation and the Constitution. Roger Sherman had a large part in what is known as the “Great Compromise”. In 1787 this combined the “New Jersey Plan” which proposed a one house national legislature where each state could cast one vote, and the “Virginia Plan” where representation would be based upon a state’s population. The “Great Compromise” created a bicameral legislature, meaning there will be two houses, one house will have equal representation, while the other is based on population of the state.

The medal for Chapter use is bronze in color and bears on the obverse a portrait of Roger Sherman within the inscription "Roger Sherman Medal.”

The medal for State Society use is antique silver in color. The medal for the National Society use is gold in color. The reverse of the medal is inscribed “In Appreciation for Service to the SAR”. It is suspended from a chest ribbon.

The set includes a full size medal, a miniature size medal and a certificate.
