The National Eagle Scout Association (NESA) is pleased to announce the 2023 Glenn A. and Melinda W. Adams National Eagle Scout Service Project of the Year Award winners at the national and service territory levels. NESA created this award to recognize exceptional service by Eagle Scout candidates to religious institutions, schools, communities, or other entities through their Eagle Scout projects.
The selection process starts locally, with Council NESA committees reviewing and selecting a winner for their council. Each council winner becomes eligible for consideration by their respective territory’s NESA scholarship committee. Finally, a special National Eagle Scout Association selection committee chooses the national award recipient from among the territory winners.
Each territory winner will receive a cash prize of $300, while the national winner will receive $3,500. The winners can use these funds for future educational purposes or to attend national or international Scouting events or activities.
