Northern New Jersey Council, BSA

The Glenn A. and Melinda W. Adams National Eagle Scout Service Project of the Year Award

 

Award Contest

The Northern New Jersey Council, BSA (NNJC) is seeking applications from the Council's Eagle Scout Class of 2018 for the Glenn A. and Melinda W. Adams National Eagle Scout Service Project of the Year Award (ESSPY).


The Award

The National Eagle Scout Association established the Glenn A. and Melinda W. Adams National Eagle Scout Service Project of the Year Award to recognize valuable service of an exceptional nature by an Eagle Scout to a religious institution, school, community or other entity through completion of an Eagle Scout Project. Examples of projects that have been selected for the ESSPY include projects that have benefitted underprivileged children, recognized veterans, been international in nature, and have required significant time and resources.


The Levels of Award

Each year, local councils select a council-level winner. From the council winners, each region selects a region-level winner. The national winner is then selected from the four regional finalists and the award is presented at the BSA Annual Meeting. The NNJC winner is recognized at the annual NNJC Eagle Dinner and on the National Eagle Scout Association website.
