    About NJHS:
    The National Junior Honor Society is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding
    middle-level students.  More than just an honor roll, NJHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated
    excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship.  Five main purposes have
    guided chapters of NJHS from the beginning: to create enthusiasm for scholarship; to stimulate a desire to
    render service; to promote leadership; to encourage responsible citizenship, and to develop character in
    the students of secondary schools. These purposes also translate into the criteria used for membership
    selection in each local chapter. (Source)
