The Daedalians inspire tomorrow’s military aviators and are proud to sponsor the Daedalian JROTC medal representing outstanding citizenship and excellence in academics.

The qualifications for this award are:

  • Has demonstrated patriotism, love of country and service to our nation.
  • Has indicated the potential and desire to pursue a military career.
  • Ranks in the upper 10 percent of his or her JROTC class.
  • Ranks in the upper 20 percent of his or her high school class.

Each year the Daedalians support approximately 1,800 schools with this award recognizing cadets across the nation for their outstanding performance and commitment to service.

Below is a certificate that can be presented to the student when they receive their medal. There is also information that should be read during the presentation of the award by a local Daedalian or JROTC instructor.

“It’s been a distinct pleasure working with our JROTC presentation program over the years. It gives us a chance to not only to give an award, but also to interact with high school juniors who could potentially be our next series of aviators and leaders.”
Lt. Col. Daniel Todd, USAF (Ret)
