Community Awards and Scholarships

Projects taken on by the Colorado Society over the past one hundred years have included protection of the American Flag and concern for the teaching of American History in our schools. 

We have been active supporters of the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps in our high schools and ROTC in Colorado colleges and universities. We make awards each year to outstanding high school and college cadets as selected by their schools.

Our Chapters also make awards to Eagle Scouts and their names are submitted to the COSSAR Eagle Scout Committee for a COSSAR Eagle Scout Award. The COSSAR Eagle Scout Awardee competes for the NSSAR Eagle Scout Award and a recent COSSAR winner placed second in the National competition and received a $4,000 college scholarship. 

COSSAR annually makes Law Enforcement Medal and Fire Safety Commendation Medal awards to local Police and Firemen.

A detailed list of planned events may be found on our Calendar of Events webpage


We work closely with our communities to keep alive the

Patriotic ideals for our ancestors who fought and died in the American Revolution.

Flag Certificate

for the display of  the AMERICAN FLAG

The Flag Certificate, authorized in 1987, is presented to individuals, companies and goverment agencies that fly the United States flag for patriotic purposes only. It is not to be given to any commercial enterprise that obviously flies it for advertising purposes. A chapter, state or the National Society can present it. The certificate has a line in the lower left corner for the name of the appropriate organization to be engrossed.


COSSAR's 2009 US Flag Display Award was presented by the Grand Mesa Chapter.
