Scout of the Year Program

- 2/1/2017

This year for the first time, Joe Wagner Post 7313 is participating in the VFW's Scout of the Year Program.

Some of the VFW's 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.

The 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.

Scouts who are registered, active members of a Boy or Girl Scout Troop, Venturing Crew, or a Sea Scout Ship who have received the Eagle Scout Award, Girl Scout Gold Award, Venture Summit Award or Sea Scout Quartermaster Award are eligible to participate in this competition.

Before submitting your Scout of the Year application, please review the rules and eligibility requirements. The deadline for submission to the Joe Wagner Post is 1 March 2017.
