Eagle Scouts, you can contact the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution. They will come to your Eagle Ceremony in Revolutionary regalia and present a certificate. Contact William (Bill) Aurand, the Scouting Liaison for the Tucson Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution, e-mail

The Sons of the American Revolution also offer an Eagle Scout Essay Scholarship Contest, open to all Eagles.   This is a lightly used contest currently so the odds of winning significant Cash Awards at the State and National level are quite good. The winner is invited to present their essay at a Chapter or State meeting as a guest of the local SAR chapter.   It is 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 Jan. to 31 Dec.) The year that Eagle was awarded is not restricted. College plans do not need to be completed in order to receive the cash scholarship. Three cash scholarship awards are given: As the National First Place winner – $8,000.00; Runner-up – $4,000.00; 2nd runner-up – $2,000.00. You may apply more than one year if you meet the age requirements but no more than $8,000.00 total may be granted to any one Eagle Scout.  The application is here:SAR_Eagle Scout Application-2015-12-28.   Ancestor chart: Eagle Scout Ancestor Chart-2015-12-28 Additional requirements and information can be found at
