“Through this award, Melinda and I wanted to shine a spotlight on the incredible work Eagle Scout candidates are doing in service to others.”
Glenn Adams, Vice-President of the National Eagle Scout Association

Bronze Eagle Scout Project of the Year device for Council Winners

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.

The selection of recipients begins at the local level and is conducted through the Golden Gate Area NESA. The council’s committee will select a recipient from the submitted nominations. After making their selection, GGAC NESA will pass their winner on to National Service Territory 3 for territory consideration.

National Service Territory ESSPY recipients are selected by each territory’s NST NESA scholarship committee. The NST recipients receive a $300 award available for their future educational purposes or to attend a national or international Scouting event or activity.

The national award recipient is then selected from among territory recipients by a special National Eagle Scout Association committee. The National recipient receives a $3,500 award, available for their future educational purposes or to attend a national or international Scouting event or activity.
