This medal is a miniature medal only.

Precedence: 15
Year Authorized: 1939
Presented By: National Society or State Society. A Chapter may present this medal only if approved by its state society.
Approved By: NSSAR Executive Committee or State Society (based on presenting authority)

Description: The medal is silver in color.

Summary: The Silver Good Citizenship Medal recognizes outstanding and unusual patriotic achievement and service that is of a more local degree (state or regional 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 other professions, and other fields of endeavor. Since it recognizes extensive service, a biographical sketch of the candidate should accompany the request for a medal. There is no requirement that persons must be awarded a Bronze Good Citizenship Medal before they may be awarded a Silver Good Citizenship Medal.

Non-member Service Requirements: In the case of a non-member, the National Society or a state society determines the qualifications.

Compatriot Service Requirements: In the case of a Compatriot, in order to have uniform criteria, the requirement has been established that the 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.).

SAR Service Restriction: The Silver Good Citizenship Medal should not be used to recognize service to the SAR, which is 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, and the Roger Sherman Medal.

Subsequent Presentation NOT Authorized: An individual (including Compatriots) may receive this medal only once. Oak leaf clusters or other ribbon attachments are not authorized.
