Established in 1921, National Honor Society and National Junior Honor Society (created in 1929) are the nation’s premier organizations established to recognize outstanding high school and middle level students. More than just an honor roll, these two societies serve to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in key areas.
Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in activities of National Honor Society and National Junior Honor Society, with chapters in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, many U.S. territories and Canada.
