The Tennessee SAR Competition

The Tennessee SAR award is $1000.00 with the winner being entered in the National Eagle Scout competition as the TNSSAR's representative. Further awards may be made by the Chapter to their winner. 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 then used for the National competition.

Note: Applications are accepted during a calendar year for Scholarships to be awarded in the Spring of the following year from Eagle Scouts who have not attained the age of 19 years old during that calendar year. Applications must be submitted through local Chapters first. If sent directly to the State Chairman, they will be returned to the applicants. If necessary, Scouts should contact the State Chairman for the chapter nearest him. The Tennessee State Chairman sets the specific deadline for receipt of applications. Applications must be received by the designated Chapter no later than 31 December 2016. Deadline for Chapter submission to State Chairman is Jan. 15, 2017.

Applications are to be sent to the appropriate TN SAR Chapter. To determine which Chapter area you are in go to our Chapter/District contacts page. The Tennessee SAR competition is conducted in two phases, local (Chapter) and state (Society). The competition must be entered through the Chapter level.
