Are your NJHS students living out the core pillars of the National Junior Honor Society: scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship? If so, it’s time to recognize them for their hard work and dedication. The NJHS Outstanding Achievement Award (OAA) offers a remarkable opportunity for students to celebrate their accomplishments and further their educational aspirations, with the top 500 being awarded a $500 college savings plan. But the January 24 application deadline is fast approaching.
To help inspire your students to reflect on their leadership and apply for this award, we’ve gathered testimonials from five students who applied for and received the OAA last year. Take their word for it: This is an opportunity you don’t want your students to miss.
