Missouri State 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, Washington.

Annually, the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States awards three individuals who are Eagle Scouts, Girl Scout Gold Award recipients, Venture Summit Award recipients and/or Sea Scout Quartermasters who have risen above their peers in exemplifying the qualities of that rank.  Our Scout of the Year program provides members of all scouting programs who display outstanding citizenship, patriotism, and love of country with an   opportunity to be rewarded with National Scholarships of up to $5,000.  Act now, the submission deadline is March 1st to your local VFW Post.

Before submitting your Scout of the year Application, please review the rules and eligibility requirements.
