Are you an Eagle Scout, or do you know an Eagle Scout who completed his Board of Review in 2018?

Applications for The Glenn A. and Melinda W. Adams National Eagle Scout Service Project of the Year Award for Eagle Scouts whose Board of Review was held in 2018 are due to the National Capital Area Council (NCAC) service center by January 18, 2019. An Eagle Scout, his parents, or any registered BSA volunteer (with the Eagle Scout’s permission) may submit his Eagle Scout service project for consideration. Remember, the Scout must sign the application, consenting to his project being nominated. A video or link to a video of the Eagle Scout describing his project is recommended but not required.

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 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.

Recipients of the Adams Award receive a framed certificate from the National Eagle Scout Association, a bronze Adams Award device and a $500 cash scholarship that can be used for educational purposes or to attend a national or international Scouting event or facility.  Recipient will also have the opportunity to be a Guest Speaker at NCAC’s annual NESA Outstanding Eagle Scout Awards event in March.

Do not send to the National Eagle Scout Association. To be considered for the Adams Award, nominations must be sent to or mailed to:
