Recognizing Stand-Out Eagle Projects
By: Posted On: 2011-10-17

 Has one of your Scouts completed a world-class Eagle Scout service project? If so, you should consider nominating him for the Glenn A. and Melinda W. Adams National Eagle Scout Service Project of the Year Award. Launched last year by the National Eagle Scout Association, this award is designed to honor the top Eagle projects on the local, regional, and national levels.


I’ve had the chance to interview the first two national winners (for NESA’s Eagle Scout Magazine), and I was blown away by their projects. While very few projects will ever reach the level those Scouts achieved, the award program should help raise the bar for projects across the country.

The deadline for applying is January 21, so you’ve got a little time. Scouts who have their boards of review in 2011 are eligible for the 2012 award. (The project could actually have occurred before 2011.) For complete details, see
