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.  The VFW's partnership with the Boy Scouts of America dates back to 1915, when VFW Post 2100 helped to establish BSA 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.


VFW Post 12002 is once again proud to support this Program and provide the following additional cash prizes at the Post level :

                    1st Place Winner  - $200.00        2nd Place Winner  -  $150.00        3rd Place Winner  -  $100.00

The Post's 1st-Place Winner will also be entered in the competition for Scout-of-the-Year for the Department of Georgia.  The Department also gives cash prizes to the top Scouts and hosts the 1st Place Winner and their family at the State Convention in Macon in June.
