Student Patriots Honor Hall at USA Patriotism!
February 26, 2008
USA Patriotism! would like to announce ...
Patriots Honor Hall ... that recognizes students through the 12th
grade for significant patriotic extra curricular efforts.
David Bancroft, founder and owner of USA Patriotism!, explains...
"Since Student Patriots was announced in 2006, I had a lingering idea
about doing something that would shine a light on those young Americans
who spent many hours involved in efforts supporting the troops and other
noble endeavors exhibiting / fostering love and pride of America.
Well, several weeks after announcing Great American Patriots in January
2008 and finalizing Ayn Rand's selection as the next Great American
Patriot . . . a girl, who is a sophomore in high school, was nominated.
And while her wonderful patriotic efforts did not meet the sustained
patriotic endeavors over many adult years required for Great American
Patriot consideration, I could not let her and other student patriots
like her go unrecognized by USA Patriotism! any longer.
So, instead . . . this high school sophomore became the first one to be
recognized in the Student Patriots Honor Hall . . . Moreover, Student
Patriots Honor Hall is application based . . . and has a 100 hour
minimum requirement over a two year period before the student or a
parent can apply, which includes providing recommendations from at least
one adult with direct knowledge of the student's patriotic endeavors . .
. USA Patriotism! will also confirm the information from the respective
And every recognized student will receive a Student Patriots Honor Hall
badge to display on his or her personal and/or family site . . . and can
include a reference to being listed on Student Patriots Honor Hall in
college and other applications.
Then there is the hope of corporate sponsoring partners that allow more
to be done for these recognized students, who could one day become a
Great American Patriot!”
USA Patriotism! is a non-political, patriotic showcase with a mission to
