The Greater Tampa Bay Area Council National Eagle Scout Association Committee is seeking nominations for the NESA Outstanding Eagle Scout Award. Requirements for this prestigious award include:

All NOESA recipients must be Eagle Scouts in good standing with the Boy Scouts of America and must either be registered with or have their primary residence within the boundaries of the nominating council. 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

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. Longevity is not a sufficient reason for selection. Please see NESA for full details.

Contact GTBAC NOESA Selection Committee Chair, David Logsdon (dlogsdon@gmail.com) with questions.
