However, students will have to purchase a shirt that ranges in price from $5-$10. The National Junior Honor Society is ideal for students who excel in their academics and desire to strengthen their leadership skills. Students who are looking for a positive group of students to work, play, lead, and serve with will benefit greatly from joining the NJHS. The members are responsible for setting a positive example of how to be a successful leader to the rest of the student body by maintaining high grades and good citizenship. The National Junior Honor Society performs at least two community service projects every year. They perform one in-school community service project and one out-of-school project.
