NESA also offers various Scholarships and Awards. Visit to find out more. 

Council NESA Committee

Attention Eagle Scouts! The Muskingum Valley Council NESA Committee is currently chaired by Carl Church. If you are interested in volunteering with this committee, please contact the Council Service Center.

The committee is now taking nominations for the NESA Outstanding Eagle Scout Award. To qualify for the NOESA, the nominee must be an Eagle Scout in good standing who has demonstrated outstanding achievement at the local, state, or regional level.  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.

To nominate someone, fill in the form and submit it to the Council Service Center, Attention: NESA Committee. If you have questions about the award, or whether someone would qualify, you can contact Chip Udischas at The local nomination deadline is November 30th of each year.
