Blue Grass NESA

National Eagle Scout Association

NESA-Emblem-(4-color)On May 19, 1972 the National Executive Board of the Boy Scouts of America authorized the formation of the National Eagle Scout Association (NESA), with the express purpose of bringing together Eagle Scouts of all ages so that they might be of greater service to their local councils, their communities, and themselves. NESA is young men searching for dynamic and challenging leadership roles, and older Eagle Scouts who desire using their efforts and influence toward forming the kind of young men America needs for leadership. The objective of NESA is to serve Eagle Scouts and through them, the entire movement of Scouting.

NESA encourages councils to form a local NESA committee, whose primary objective is to guide Eagle Scouts of all ages into service within the local council. The Blue Grass Council’s NESA committee is known as Blue Grass NESA. Its purpose is to support the council’s mission and vision, to help the council achieve its Journey to Excellence goals, and to find and encourage Eagle Scouts to become active resources for the council’s leadership and programs.

Please nominate fellow Scouters for the awards listed below:


THE GLEN A. AND MELINDA W. ADAMS

NATIONAL EAGLE SCOUT

“SERVICE PROJECT OF THE YEAR AWARD”

In 2010, the National Eagle Scout Association established the Glenn A. and Melinda W. Adams National Eagle Scout Service Project of the Year Award (NESSPY) 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.

The NESA Outstanding Eagle Scout Award (NOESA) was established in 2011 as a prestigious recognition granted by the local council’s NESA committee to Eagle Scouts who have demonstrated outstanding achievement at the local, state, or regional level. Unlike the Distinguished Eagle Scout Award, which is a national award, the NOESA recognizes Eagle Scouts whose efforts have made a positive impact closer to home. The award may not be granted posthumously.

In addition, these recipients have demonstrated a strong record of volunteer leadership service to their community. All DESA nominations must be made through the candidate’s local council with approval by the council’s NESA committee. The award may not be granted posthumously.
