The Glenn A. and Melinda W. Adams National Eagle Scout Service Project of the Year Award program of the National Council is designed to recognize the valuable service of an exceptional nature by an Eagle 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.

The council winner and up to five finalists are recognized at the annual New Eagle Scout Reception. Each finalist will receive a certificate and the council award recipient will receive an award pin for their uniform. 

All Eagle Scouts with Board of Review dates in 2017, may now apply. Parents, mentors, or leaders of the Eagle Scout can complete the form on behalf of the Eagle Scout. The deadline to submit a nomination is January 15, 2018.
