The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to recognize 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 beginning in 1921.
Attention Juniors and Seniors who are interested in applying to the National Honor Society for the 2021-2022 school year. (If you were inducted into NHS your Junior year, you do not need to apply again – you’re already in!)
Here are the basic requirements:
Students must have at least a four-semester (after sophomore year) or a six-semester (after junior year) 3.750 cumulative grade point average.
Service: Prior to the application due date of 9/10/21, students must have at least 15 hours of documented service in order to apply to NHS. Any service hours earned dating back to April 1st of your freshman year count. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, service hours to your family will be accepted as long as those hours were unpaid and above and beyond your normal contribution to the family. Many of you have had to step up at home because of various family disruptions -- so feel free to include any hours for taking care of younger siblings, helping with extra chores around the house, shopping for the family, etc. Helping your family or extended family and friends during a pandemic is a great example of service. Also, please note that mission trip hours count a maximum of 8 hours/day.
Tenatively, here are the important upcoming dates:
Friday, 8/27/21: Online applications will be sent to your school email(<student#>@hudson.k12.oh.us) if you meet the GPA requirement.
