The National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) invites all 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students interested in the American Revolution to participate in the Americanism Elementary School Poster Contest. The contest is open to public school, parochial, home schooled, Scouting, or Children of the American Revolution member students in that same grade range. Young artists with an enthusiasm toward art, a love of American history, or a passion in creative expression can submit their posters to their local SAR chapter for competition. While the Americanism Poster Contest begins at the local level, students' masterpieces may eventually be judged and monetarily awarded at the national level in June at the annual SAR Congress.

Students create posters responding to a theme set by the Sons of the American Revolution. The theme for the Poster Contest rotates annually based upon whether the school year ends in an even or odd number.

All posters will be judged by the following criteria:
  1. Does the poster express the annual theme?
  2. Does the poster show originality by the student?
  3. Does the poster show evidence of research?
  4. Does the poster show artistic merit and creativity?
  5. Does the poster accurately reflect the historical event?
  6. Is the poster neat and visually pleasing?
