I think that that would be a really good idea.  However, how do you 
choose who outstanding and who is not.  I would also like to point out 
that choosing one over another could cause bad blood within his 
"territory" so to speak and could be dangerous for him/her and anyone 
else who may be involved. (ie. the mentor)
Also, I know very few people who would be interested in the SCA simply 
because of lack of education about the time period we play.  They feel 
silly playing "dress up".  Their average day consists of playing with 
guns, and feeling confident on either side of them, because at least 
they aren't ignorant about what will happen, or the mechanism of it all.
Don't get me wrong, I am not bashing them...I can't...would be pretty 
hypocritical of fact, if this ever happens I know of two right 
away that I would recommend...I am merely (for once in my life) trying 
to be realistic.
