Qualities of NHS Members
  • A good application will show the selection committee that you possess the qualities of an NHS member.
  • It is your responsibility to CAREFULLY put together an application highlighting your strengths and accomplishments.
  • A panel of school community members will review each application
  • The advisors and officers have NO SAY in who is selected
  • The Selection committee makes their decisions based solely on the following criteria…
  • Candidates are required to put service to others above their own interests.
examples of service
Examples of Service:
  • helped younger children with sporting events
  • taught religious education
  • led a food drive
  • participated in a Walk-A-Thon or Relay for Life
  • planted a community garden
  • participated in Key Club events
  • participated in service through Scouting
  • Candidates are expected to take constructive leads in the classroom, school and/or community. Others should look up to you and look to you for ideas, guidance and support.
examples of leadership
Examples of Leadership
  • coach of a younger child’s team
  • selected as team captain (academic or athletic)

  • organized an event for a club

  • Relay for Life team captain

  • Perhaps you are responsible for a younger child in your family, if so, please share.
  • If you work in a family business, submit hours and responsibilities.
  • To demonstrate your character you will compose an essay.
  • The essay should be a proposal for an Honor Society event.
  • Keep it to the point, but complete.
  • This proposal should give the selection committee an idea of the kind of person you are.
  • The condition of the application you hand in speaks volumes about who you are.
  • If your application is neat, clean and put together it shows the selection committee that you care and are committed to becoming a member.
  • If your application is out of order, crumpled, stained, or a general mess that tells the committee that you don’t really care too much about this process or the organization.
