Scout Of The Year
2022 - 2023
Some of our earliest ties to the community involve youth groups and perhaps none are stronger or more lasting than the relationship between the VFW and America's scouting organizations. In fact, our partnership with the Boy Scouts of America dates back to 1915 when VFW Post 2100 helped to establish Troop 1 in Everett, Washington.
Our Scout of the Year program provides members of the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts who display standout citizenship, patriotism and love of country with the opportunity to be rewarded with college scholarships of up to $5,000.
Before submitting your Scout of the Year application, please review the rules and eligibility requirements.
Local VFW Posts submit all candidates with full entry criteria to their respective VFW Department (State) by March 1. From there, the Department selects a winner and forwards the entry to the VFW National Headquarters by April 1 for national-level judging.
Please send application to your VFW Post / VFW Auxiliary for submissions.
