About the H.L. Hunley Award

The Sons of Confederate Veterans proudly awards the H.L. Hunley JROTC award to deserving cadets in Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine JROTC programs across the nation. Similar awards are given by other organizations such as Sons of the American Revolution and the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War. Last year over 3,000 JROTC units participated in the Hunley Award, including a quarter of the JROTC units in Arizona.

The award is named for the CSS H.L. Hunley, the first submarine to successfully sink an enemy warship. Although the award has a naval theme, it is appropriate for presentation to Army and Air Force recipients. The CSS H.L. Hunley was commanded by 1stLt George Dixon, an infantry officer. The crew was made up of volunteers from both the Confederate Army and Navy.

In Arizona, applications for the award are managed by the Arizona Division Awards Coordinator. Military instructors for a particular school's JROTC program select the recipient based on the following criteria:

    * Maintain a 3.5 grade point average

    * Demonstrated leadership position within the JROTC unit

    * Have a well-rounded high school career including sports, music, art, or other extra curricular         

    * Maintain an accepted level of physical fitness

    * Exhibit the traits of Honor, Courage, and Commitment

The award consists of a certificate suitable for framing, a full-size medal, and a ribbon for wear on a standard ribbon rack. 

Military Instructors: To receive an information packet and application, contact the Division Awards Coordinator or call 520-456-6956. Applications should be submitted to the coordinator in sufficient time for the award to be delivered to your school prior to the awards ceremony.
