Glenn A. and Melinda W. Adams National Eagle Scout Service Project of the Year Award
The National Eagle Scout Association established the Glenn A. and Melinda W. Adams National Eagle Scout Service Project of the Year award (ESSPY) to recognize valuable service of an exceptional nature by an Eagle Scout candidate to a religious institution, a school, community or other entity through completion of an Eagle Scout project.
Examples of projects that have been selected for the ESSPY include projects that have benefited underprivileged children, recognized veterans, been international in nature, and have required significant time and resources.
The selection of recipients begins at the local level and is conducted through the council NESA committee (which may utilize a NESA awards sub-committee). The council NESA committee selects a recipient for their respective council from the list of submitted nominations and then forwards a worthy candidate to the National Eagle Scout Association for territory consideration.
Territory ESSPY recipients are selected by each council’s territory NESA scholarship committee. Territory recipients will receive $300, to be available for their future educational purposes or to attend a national or international Scouting event or facility.
The recipient of the national award is then selected among territory recipients by a special selection committee of the National Eagle Scout Association. National recipients will receive $3,500, to be available for their future educational purposes or to attend a national or international Scouting event or facility.
How to apply:
- An Eagle Scout, the Scout's parents, or any registered BSA volunteer (with the Eagle Scout’s permission) may submit the Eagle Scout's service project for consideration.
- The Eagle Scout must have passed the Eagle Scout Rank Board of Review between January 1, 2021 - December 31, 2021.
- An Eagle Scout who completed the Eagle Scout Rank Board of Review must have a nomination submitted by January 31st of the following year. The nomination must be submitted to the NESA committee of the council in which the service project was completed.
