The National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) recognizes students that excel academically and that have demonstrated strong leadership and committed service to the community. The NJHS considers candidates' fitness based on the criteria of Scholarship, Leadership, Character, Service and Citizenship.
Discuss your scholarly achievements. National Junior Honor Society membership is offered only to students that have demonstrated academic excellence. List your grade point average, class rank and any awards, such as Honor Roll, that recognize your scholarly achievements. Also list honors, college prep or advanced placement courses that you have taken or in which you are currently enrolled. It is important to prove not only that you have succeeded academically, but also that you have challenged yourself academically.
