Cameron Twarog, a student at Keene High School, was selected as the New Hampshire Daughters of the American Revolution Good Citizen. He was sponsored by the Ashuelot Chapter of the state organization. He is the son of John and Cheryl Twarog. Cameron’s application has moved on to the Northeast Division competition.

DAR honored 64 high school seniors for being selected as their respective high schools’ DAR Good Citizen for 2017-2018.

The second-place DAR Good Citizen winner was Dara McWeeney from Concord High School and the third-place winner was Brian Zawacki of Farmington High School.

The DAR Good Citizen program and scholarship contest, created in 1934, is intended to encourage and reward the qualities of good citizenship. Students selected for this award have exhibited the qualities of dependability, service, leadership and patriotism.

Each student was invited by their sponsoring DAR chapter to submit an application and an essay for the scholarship competition. A panel of judges selected one winner per chapter who then advanced to the state level competition.
