Best Sapper Competition History

The Best Sapper Competition began in 2005 as a means for service members to show off their skills.

The three-day competition is open for two Person teams of Army or Marine Engineer MOS competitors in the grades of E4 and above. A team must consist of at least one member who is a graduate of the Sapper Leader Course. Any unit desiring an exception to the established eligibility must submit exceptions through the Engineer Regimental Command Sergeant Major.

The competition's concept is to not only determine the next "Best Sapper" team, but to challenge and test the service members' knowledge, physical prowess and mental fortitude.

The competition showcases the Army's elite Soldiers in combat engineering military occupation specialties.
