Arthur M. and Berdena King Eagle Scout Contest

Open to all Eagle Scouts who are currently registered in an active unit and have not reached their 19th birthday during the year of application.  (The application year is the calendar year, 01 January to 31 December.)  The year that the Eagle rank was awarded is not restricted. 

College plans do not have to be completed in order to receive the award.  Three cash awards are given:  As the National First Place Winner - $10,000; Runner-up - $6,000; 2nd Runner-up - $4,000.  You may apply more than one year if you meet the age requirements but no more than $10,000 total may be granted to any one Eagle Scout.  Prizes and recognitions may also be awarded at the Chapter and State level.

Entrants need complete only one application - the one for the Chapter competition. The application of the Chapter winner is forwarded to be used in the State and National competitions as appropriate.

The application consists of three parts:

  1. Eagle Scout Contest Application Form

  2. Four Generation Ancestor Chart

  3. 500 word Patriotic Themed Essay

    The competition is conducted in three phases, local (Chapter), State (Society), and National.  The competition is usually entered through the Chapter level. In some cases, the competition may be entered at the State level. You may not enter at the National level.
