The Historic Preservation Committee promotes historic preservation through its two awards: the Historic Preservation Medal and the Historic Preservation Recognition Award. It encourages recognition of significant volunteer efforts at the community, state, and national levels.
LSDAR is passionate about educating America’s youth and supports a variety of different programs, contests, and awards to help further this goal. LSDAR members promote different educational contests and programs in area schools teaching subjects such as the American Revolutionary War, family history and genealogy, the colonial period, and early America.
