Americanism Video Contest
The NFRW Americanism Committee is sponsoring a video contest for K-12 students on the topic of "Patriotism in America Today." Video submissions should be 1-3 minutes in length, and can feature either an individual or a group. Contestants should send their entry form and video submission on a flash drive to their State Federation President or State Federation Americanism Chair by December 15, 2020. Two grand prize winners and two runners-up will receive a cash prize, and the winning videos will be shown at the NFRW Spring Board of Directors Meeting in 2021.
The NFRW Americanism program seeks to promote respect for the American Flag and foster allegiance to the United States and its customs and institutions.
Republican women’s clubs help carry out this mission in their local communities through educational and inspirational programs and projects. Examples include:
- Teaching the rules of Flag etiquette
- Donating patriotic books to libraries and schools
- Sponsoring patriotic essay contests for schools
- Presenting flags to schools and community groups
To aid clubs in their local efforts, the NFRW Americanism Committee assembles historic and patriotic material and provides resources, project ideas and other helpful information.
