National junior honor society essay tips?

For your NJHS essay, you need to include how you show leadership,character,citizenship,how you are of service, and why you want to be involved in the NJHS. When I wrote mine, I had a problem of what to put, so I'll help you with each requirement. For leadership, you can include how you don't follow other people's bad influences, how you are a leader of things you participate in, such as school. For character, you should include how you are honest, respectful, and how have courtesy. For citizenship, it's basically what it says; how you are a good citizen. For service, you can write how you help your community, if you participate in fundraisers, anything helpful you do voluntarily. Remember, the NJHS is about helping out, so write why you would like to help out and you can put how you would like to increase your leadership skills and be of more service.

How do you get in National honor society?

The National Honor Society is a very prestigious club to be inducted into. In order to first be considered a student, usually high school junior but sometimes senior, must have a very high GPA OS 95.00 (weighted) or 3.9, depending on how your school does it. After this a student will receive an application in which extracurriculars, leadership, and volunteer service must be clearly documented proving that you are a very well rounded student with high potential. If you have a goal of getting into NHS I highly suggest you start building up your leadership abilities and extracurriculars soon so there will be no discrepancy come application time. Good luck!

What is The National Scholars Honor Society?

"The National Scholars Honor Society is a private and independent academic honors organization dedicated to encouraging, recognizing, and rewarding high academic achievement in all areas of study. The membership is composed of students and scholars from university, graduate, and professional programs. The National Scholars Honor Society is the only national honor society to adopt and function by an honor code. The National Scholars Honor Code cultivates honor and integrity in membership in a practical way, creating trust and an atmosphere of respect, which all scholars deserve, and should expect from any honor society. We strive to encourage and reward personal growth and development, placing a high value on students who possess a sense of civic responsibility and dedication to our nation's political process. The National Scholars Honor Society does not endorse any particular political views."

The Honor Code is an open invitation for applicants to demonstrate their honesty, integrity, and self-determination.

The Honor Code: "I will conduct my academic and personal affairs with the utmost integrity. I will honor myself, and the tenets of the National Honor Society."

Previous answer:

Well I have to admit that I am skeptical of them but I received a nifty embossed certificate with a letter saying that my membership fee had been waived because of my academic achievement. It may very well be a scam but I don't know why they would send me a pin, certificate and letter for free…

They also have their bylaws posted which is kind of good for a honor society.
