The National Honor Society recognizes outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginnings in 1921. Students are nominated and selected by a panel of teachers. Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in activities of the NHS and National Junior Honor Society for middle school students. NHS and NJHS chapters are found in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, many U.S. Territories, and Canada. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.
