The National Junior Honor Society, or NJHS is a worldwide organization that consists of chapters in middle schools (grades 6-8). Selection is based on five criteria: citizenship, service, leadership, scholarship and character. Members must maintain a high grade point average (the national minimum is a 3.0)and become good citizens (by participating in service projects). The NJHS requires some sort of school service to the community, school, or other organizations. The projects help students meet the required service hour total monthly.
The National Honor Society (NHS) is a recognition program for high school students in grades 10-12 in the United States of America and in several other countries. NHS honors those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. It was founded in 1921 by the National Association of Secondary School Principals.
