National Honor Society

National Honor Society Program Overview

SHS NHS is not about just accumulating hours of service.  We attempt to produce service, not just do service, through the four pillars of NHS:  Character, Scholarship, Leadership, & Service.  

How to Apply...

The application window for NHS will open the week before spring break and will remain open for one month.  After this time no new applications will be accepted.  Check back before spring break for a link to the application.  SHS NHS is for 11th and 12th grade students.  Incoming 11th (current 10th grade students) and 12th grades (current 11th grade students) students are welcome to apply.  Thanks for your interest in your possible induction into the SHS NHS Chapter.

Angels For Kids 2021!

We are so very thankful for everyone who participated in our Angels for Kids fundraiser! You all helped us raise more than $10,000, all of which will go directly to the Children's Hospital of Minnesota. We cannot thank you all enough for your support as we never expected to achieve this level of success while operating virtually. 

Serving our Community

Hi NHS students! Right now there is a need within our community for additional personal protective equipment or PPE that we have heard so much about. In an effort to respond to our community during this time, NHS is attempting to help create face masks for members in our community.  Participation in this activity is not required, but if you have the time and supplies feel free to help! Please view the video to the right to learn how to make a face mask. If you decide to make a mask please take a picture and share it with your group leaders!


Thank you to all that applied for the NHS leadership positions. Through three levels of vetting, the following will serve as NHS Student Leadership for the 2020-2021 school year. Congratulations to the 2020-2021 NHS Leadership Team!
