2019 $20,000 Eagle Scout Award Program – Sponsored by Sons of the American Revolution (SAR)

October 08, 2019

The Fairfax Resolves chapter for SAR (responsible for the Fairfax/Loudoun county areas) is calling for the submission of applications for this year’s competition NLT than 12/15/19.  Last year the Fairfax Resolves Chapter winner was Matthew Lawley who subsequently won the State wide competition and received that $1,000 State award (photo). The National awards are $10,000 for first place and $6,000 for second and $4,000 for third place.

The competition requires completion of a simple questionnaire demonstrating accomplishments, preparation of a four generation family tree (we can assist if you have questions) and a 500 word (less than two page) essay on the revolutionary war.

The competition is open to current Eagle Scouts and those achieving Eagle by 12/15/19 and those who have not reached the age of 19 by 12/15/19.

We have learned over the past two years that, although possible, it is highly unlikely to be competitive and receive the State or National level award unless the Scout has received the National Heritage, Law and Genealogy merit badges that are weighted more heavily in the scoring. So please plan to achieve these three merit badges before 12/15/19 or to prepare for next year’s competition.
