WHAT IS SOUTH GEORGIA COUNCIL NESA 

and

THE SOUTH GEORGIA COUNCIL NESA COMMITTEE

 

     The South Georgia Council NESA is a fellowship of men who have achieved the Eagle Scout rank and desire to assist with the national objective for the Association is to serve Eagle Scouts and, through them, the entire movement of Scouting.  The South Georgia Council NESA offers Eagle Scouts the opportunity to give back to Scouting through service to their fellow Scouts by guiding Eagle Scouts of all ages into service within the Council and shaping Scouting for the future.

 

  As the South Georgia Council NESA we (1) identify, contact and keep up-to-date information on all Eagle Scouts in South Georgia, (2) Support the annual banquet and Eagle Scout recognition both financially and in attendance, (3) encourage all Eagle Scouts to participate in the scouting through South Georgia Council, and (4) encourage all Eagle Scouts to become a member of the National Eagle Scout Association.

  
         
The South Georgia Council NESA Committeeu consists of eight Eagle Scouts who are registered scouts with the South Georgia Council and who select scouts for NESA awards and scholarships.

 

 The Committee presents the South Georgia Council Eagle Scout Service Project of the Year Award.  In 2009, the National Eagle Scout Association 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 year, local councils select a council-level winner, and from that pool, each region selects a region-level winner. A national winner is then selected from the four regional finalists.  


The Committee presents the NESA Outstanding Eagle Scout Award.  Adult Eagle Scouts who have demonstrated outstanding achievement at the local, state, or regional level are eligible for this award. 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.
