The VSWGA has a junior golf committee to coordinate efforts to promote the game, especially among girls in Vermont. Half the revenue from the Closest to the Pin contests at every State Day is donated to the Vermont Golf Association Scholarship fund and to instructional programs for juniors throughout the state. In 2020 the VSWGA raised $2072 for Junior Golf; $2147 was raised in 2019. Membership to the VSWGA is now free to all junior members, 18 or younger, and discounted or free Amateur Championship fees are available.
