Eagle Scout Contest
Scouts who complete their Eagle rank between July 1, 1997, and June 30, 1998, are eligible to compete in the SAR Eagle Scout Essay Contest for the national prize to be awarded in June 1999. The closing date for entries to chapter level competition is typically December 31, 1998, (so Scouts have six to eighteen months after earning Eagle to complete the award application process.
Entrants need to complete only one application -- the one for the chapter competition. If it is a winner it is then used for the state competition, and if it is a winner again it is used for the national competition.
Note: The contest for Scouts who completed their Eagle rank between July 1, 1996, and June 30, 1997, is now closed to new applicants. See our story on the 1998 awardee.
The contest is conducted in three phases, local (Chapter), state (Society), and National. The contest usually must be entered through competition at the Chapter level. In some cases, the contest may be entered at the state level. You may not enter at the national level.
Prizes may be awarded at Chapter (local) and State Society (state) levels; the national prize is several thousand dollars.
