National Outstanding Eagle Scout Award (NOESA) Nomination Form

The NESA Outstanding Eagle Scout Award (NOESA) is 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. The NOESA recognizes Eagle Scouts whose efforts have made a positive impact in the community.

The presentation of this award should be conducted with the highest level of honor. Often, these individuals have devoted a lifetime of service to their community and Scouting America at a great sacrifice to themselves and their families. Each recipient should receive recognition worthy of a lifetime’s accomplishments.

Eligibility:

All NOESA recipients must be Eagle Scouts in good standing with Scouting America and must either be registered with or have their primary residence within the boundaries of the nominating council. No length of time is required to have passed since earning the rank. Examples of possible recipients include: 

  • Local heroes and celebrities at the peak of their notoriety whose achievements outside of Scouting have touched and inspired others; 
  • Philanthropists, public servants, educators, or business owners who have made a positive, long-term impact as cornerstones of the community; 
  • Individuals who have attained prominence at the state or regional level in their profession or avocation—an avocation being any activity including, but not limited to, athletics, hobbies, collecting, outdoor adventure, and record-setting activities. 

Each recipient’s actions and accomplishments should elevate the stature of Eagle Scouts in the public eye, and each recipient shall be held to the standards set forth in the Scout Oath, Scout Law, and national BSA standards for membership.
