Robert Rankin Chapter #62
Texas Society Sons of the American Revolution
Katy, TX





The Robert Rankin Chapter is very active in youth programs.  In 2005, there were over 60 entries in the Knight Essay Contest, and 250 entries in the James W. Looney Elementary School Poster Contest.  At the state level, Chapter sponsored essays have won first place and third place, and a poster won third place.  Each year the Chapter recognizes outstanding JROTC cadets by awarding Bronze JROTC medals and certificates at every high school in the Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District with a JROTC program (five in 2006).  In 2005, Eagle Scout certificates were mailed to over 30 new Eagle Scouts living in the Katy Independent School District.  In 2006, the Robert Rankin Chapter received the Group 1 (10-39 members) Outstanding Chapter award, largely because of its enthusiastic participation in these educational and patriotic programs during 2005.

The Robert Rankin Chapter sponsors each of the following contests and awards.  The links below will direct you to links with more information.  In general, the deadline for the contests for the Chapter is December 23 of each year.  The timing for the awards is determined jointly by the Chapter and the appropriate organization.  For each of the contests, the Chapter offers a minimum of a $100 savings bond for the Chapter nominee to the State Contest.  If you have other questions, please contact Edwin Raines.
