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.

Scouts must apply to their local council by January 21, 2011.
NESA granted the very first national award to an Eagle Scout from the Baltimore Area Council in 2010. The winner attended the National Annual Meeting in Dallas as a guest of NESA where he received his award from Glenn and Melinda Adams in front of 1,300 attendees at the NESA Americanism Breakfast.
