Adams Eagle Scout Project of the Year Award


Award Summary

The National Eagle Scout Association has 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 a Scout to a religious institution, a school, community, or other entity. The award recognizes the Scout for his Eagle Scout leadership service project, which is part of the requirements for earning the Eagle Scout Award. Each local council will choose a council-level winner, and from that pool, each region will pick a region-level winner. A national winner then will be selected from the four regional finalists.

Texas Southwest Council invites nomination of an Eagle Scout for this prestigious award which recognizes their leadership skills and ability to make an impact on the lives of people.  Any Eagle Scout project can be submitted as long as it falls within the calendar year guidelines of the award.

The linked nomination application and submission guidelines can be completed by the Eagle Scout himself, a parent or guardian, a relative, school teacher, Scoutmaster or another Scouter who knows the Eagle Scout.
