National-Scout of the Year
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,
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.
