Eagle Scout Service Project of the Year Award

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, a 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.

Any questions about the process can be directed to eagles@colbsa.org

National Outstanding Eagle Scout Award

In 2011 the National Eagle Scout Association created the National Outstanding Eagle Scout Award as a way to recognize adult Eagle Scouts who have demonstrated outstanding achievement at the local, state, or regional level. This can include exemplary volunteer service to Scouting and/or in the community, achievement in their professional field, distinguished military service, or other accomplishments over an extended period of time. The nominee must currently live within the boundaries of the council but does not have to have earned his Eagle Scout Award as a member of our council.

To nominate an Eagle Scout for this prestigious award, please see the NOESA Nomination Instructions

Eagle Scout Scholarship Fund

Each year we awarded 1 or more Cradle of Liberty Eagle Scout Scholarships to Eagle Scouts who were selected as the most deserving.

We know how much of a difference this scholarship can make in a young person’s life as they work to further their studies. We believe that there are many Eagle Scouts who could also use some financial assistance to help them pursue their studies in college or technical school.

We hope that you will help us to support these deserving young men and women.

Thanks so much for your support, and all that you do for Scouting!
