The National Junior Honor Society (NJHS)
Established in 1929, the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding middle school students. More than just an honor roll, NJHS serve to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character and Citizenship. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since it’s beginning in 1929.
Today, hundreds of thousands of students participate in activities of the NJHS. NJHS chapters are throughout the United States 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.
