The Naples Chapter is involved in the community - that of Naples
and Collier County as a whole - in many exciting and educational
ways. Not only do we engage in public ceremonies, but we give
out hundreds of dollars in award scholarships each year.
BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA
Each year we select the essay of a local Eagle Scout to receive the
Eagle Scout Essay Scholarship. Not only do we award them with a
cash prize, but they receive a beautiful medal, certificate and the
opportunity to win more money at the State and National levels.
JROTC OUTSTANDING CADETS
Every year the Chapter awards a JROTC student from each of
Collier County's seven public schools with a commendation medal,
uniform ribbon, and certificate of Achievement. These cadets are
selected by their instructors based on their class participation and
JOSEPH RUMBAUGH ORATION CONTEST
The Naples Chapter annually holds an oration contest to select a
candidate for the state contest with the winner receiving a
monetary reward. The winner of the state competition advances to
the national level to compete for college scholarships.
HISTORY BOOK AWARD
Members of the Chapter award outstanding students from all the
public high schools as well as a few private schools with this
seemingly modest prize for their efforts in both history and political
science. These Seniors enjoy receiving the award but love it even
more when given to them personally by a Compatriot in a period
uniform - making them the talk of the night!
This Chapter keeps busy as well with Parades, Patriotic Moment
Ceremonies, Memorial Day, Flag Displays, Election
Adopt-A-Precinct, Law Enforcement Recognition and many, many
other activities. More to come on those in the future...
