Authorized By: 250th Anniversary of the American Revolution Committee
Description:

Medal: The medal is suspended from a drape (patterned red/white/blue/white/red) and is a round

disk of gold, silver or bronze, depending on the level of the award. The obverse is the official SAR
logo for the 250th Anniversary of the American Revolution. The reverse is blank and suitable for
engraving. A certificate is available for presentation. A miniature medal is available.

Summary: The medals are designed to encourage and recognize those compatriots, chapters and

societies to participate in local, state, national and international events which publically educate, and
recognize, honor, and celebrate the heroes of the American Revolution. Participation involves the
planning and execution of these events, as well as attendance. The medal covers the celebration of
any event's 250th anniversary where said event related directly to acts of resistance to British
attempts to coerce the residents in America: from the first Parliamentary Acts protested after the
conclusion of the French and Indian Wars, through the armed struggle of the American War for
Independence, to the ratification of the Treaty of Paris by the Continental Congress. This therefore
will cover any public celebrations in the period from 2014 to 2033.

a. Throughout the score sheet, an 'event' may refer to a program or activity focused on the
250th Anniversary of the American Revolution or events that led up to the Revolution,
in accordance with the time period listed above.

and subsequent events.
