The Gold Country SAR is pleased to provide local teachers with speakers who are knowledgeable on the yearly poster topic. Most of our speakers appear in Revolutionary War costume or uniform. Posters are judged and prizes are awarded at the School, Chapter, State and National levels. A representative of the National Art Education Association (NAEA) is invited to participate in the national poster judging.
