  • complete the candidate form and turn it in by the deadline posted (February 26, 2021)
  • receive positive recommendations from current teachers
  • have been a student at HMS for at least one semester

The faculty council judges Candidates based on four main criteria based on the pillars of National Junior Honor Society: Service, Leadership, Character, and Citizenship.The council will use the candidate form and teacher recommendations to then decide which candidates will become members. Candidates must receive a majority vote to be chosen as a member.
