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, 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.
