Arthur M. & Berdena King Eagle Scout Contest

The National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) invites all Eagle Scouts interested in the American Revolution to participate in the Arthur M. & Berdena King Eagle Scout Contest. The contest is completed on three levels: the local SAR Chapter, the State competition, and finally a National competition.  There are sizable monetary awards at each of the levels.

The contest is open to all Eagle Scouts who are currently registered in an active unit and, except as provided in the paragraph below, have not reached their nineteenth birthday during the year of application.  The year that the Eagle rank was awarded is not restricted.

Temporary Transition Rules Extension – Any youth who registered as a member of Scouts BSA between February 1, 2019, and December 1, 2019 and was granted an extension by the National Council BSA to complete the Eagle Scout rank requirements after they have turned 18 years of age, will have 365 days from the date their Eagle Scout application was validated by the National Advancement Program Team to enter the contest.  A copy of the approved extension must be attached to the contest application.  College plans do not have to be completed in order to receive the awards.
