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 Council NESA committee. The Council NESA committee selects a recipient for their respective Council from the list of submitted nominations. It then forwards a worthy candidate to the National Eagle Scout Association for National Service Territory consideration.
National Service Territory ESSPY recipients are selected by each Council’s NST NESA scholarship committee. NST recipients receive $300 available for their future educational purposes or to attend a national or international Scouting event or activity.
The recipient of the national award is then selected from among territory recipients by a special selection committee of the National Eagle Scout Association. National recipients receive $3,500, available for their future educational purposes or to attend a national or international Scouting event or activity.
An Eagle Scout, their parents, or any registered BSA volunteer (with the Eagle Scout’s permission) may submit an Eagle Scout’s service project for consideration.
The nomination shall be submitted to the NESA committee of the Golden Gate Area Council, the council in which the service project was completed on or before January 31st of each year. The submission must include a complete duplicate copy of the Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook.
