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.
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.
