Back on February 10 I posted about the VFW Scout of the Year nomination process. It seems that response is somewhat down this year, and if you have a high achieving Scout in your unit, Eagle or Silver Award, you are encouraged to fill out and return the nomination as soon as possible to help the VFW identify potential scholarship recipients. Many VFW Posts have not put forth nominations yet. The Scout does not have to be part of a unit sponsored by a Post.

In our District Committee discussions last night, Carol Voss suggested that even an incomplete application (one lacking all 5 of the letters of reference) would be welcome to hold the Scout’s place in the selection process until all letters could be collected.

Please forward all questions and nomination materials to Larry Kutschma as soon as possible. He must hear from you by April 21, 2012.
