What is SASC?

The St. Andrew Society of Colorado began in Denver in 1963. The Society exists to provide all persons with an interest in Scotland the opportunity to pursue their interest in Scottish culture, traditions, and history. The Society is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.

The St. Andrew Society of Colorado (SASC) supports the Scottish heritage throughout Colorado. SASC has given scholarships to highland dancers, bagpipers and drummers to attend workshops and competitions throughout the U.S. and abroad. SASC also supports and supplies funds for other groups that support the Scottish heritage in Colorado.

Tartan & Chieftain Awards

Every year the Chieftain awards three individuals with the prestige’s Chieftain Award. The awards go to a piper, drummer and dancer that has shown  his or her contribution and dedication to the Scottish community in  Colorado. They are selected by nominations and reviews of their bios, then  chosen by the current Chieftain.
The Chieftain also gets the pleasure of awarding the Tartan Award which is  presented annually to a deserving person(s) for outstanding services  rendered to the Society or community. Written nominations may be submitted to the Society Secretary from the membership at any time.
