Who is Eligible to Apply for Consideration for NHS?

Tenth and eleventh grade students with a GPA of 3.6 or better, taking standard and upper level coursework, are eligible to apply for National Honor Society.

 PWCS NHS Candidate application TYPE.docx 

Completed NHS candidate applications are to be submitted in the fall.  The new due date will be announced in September 2020.  In September there will be a meeting for all eligible candidates to review the application process, answer all questions and discuss new deadlines. Students who qualify for candidacy at that time, who did not previously apply, may apply at that time as we will begin the process again so that everyone who is eligible who wants to be a part of NHS may apply. 

All documentation of volunteer and leadership service should be attached to packet.  Late forms will not be considered.

An advisory committee of FHS staff members will review the applications and select the candidates.  Only fully completed packets will be reviewed for membership.
