Summary: The Bronze Good Citizenship Medal is a multi-purpose award designed to recognize individuals who have whose community (i.e., school, locality or state) achievements are noteworthy. It can be presented to both adults and minors and to Compatriots (subject to below limitation) and non-Compatriots alike. The medal was originally designed as a medallion, but a ribbon and clasp were added in 1932 to convert it to a medal.

Non-Compatriot Presentation Suggestions: The following are some examples for presenting this award:
1. Community Involvement: An individual who has made an important contribution to the community that is not as significant as those contributions that would qualify for the Silver Good Citizenship Medal.
2. School Involvement: The outstanding high school student in his/her school considering both citizenship and scholarship. The exact criteria is at the discretion of the presenting authority (i.e., it could be presented to a high school senior or junior based on overall scholarship and citizenship; or to a high school student with the highest grades in American history; or a high school student with the best record in citizenship, etc.).
3. U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC): This medal is authorized for presentation to a cadet in the U.S. Navy Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC) to an Outstanding Cadet as nominated by his/her Commanding Officer. Eligibility criteria: The award is presented to a cadet who (1) is in the NSCC Program (not the NLCC Program), (2) is in his or her last, or next to last, year in the NSCC program, (3) has attained the rank of Petty Officer Second Class or above; (4) is in good standing militarily and scholastically at the time of selection and presentation; (5) demonstrates a high degree of merit with respect to leadership qualities, military bearing, and excellence in the performance of duties; (6) has the potential for greater leadership responsibilities; and (7) is recommended by the unit Commanding Officer.

Compatriot Presentation Requirements: A Compatriot may be awarded the Bronze Good Citizenship Medal if either (1) he has served, subject to the restriction described immediately below, in at least four of the leadership capacities covered under the Silver Good Citizenship Medal (see above), or (2) he qualifies by some other outstanding achievement in his community. Subsequent awards must be for different service than the service used for prior awards.

SAR service is only recognized by the Minuteman Award, the National Medal of Distinguished Service, the State Medal of Distinguished Service, Patriot Medal, the Chapter Medal of Distinguished Service, Meritorious Service Medal, the Roger Sherman Medal, and any nationally approved District or State Society service medal.
