Exemplary Chapter Project Awards
The NEHS Exemplary Chapter Project Award recognizes the best projects from those submitted to each category of the Chapter Spotlight Program. The NEHS Advisory Council considers student motivation and creativity, and quality of service and level of impact when making final decisions.
The winning chapter in each category (listed below) will receive $200.
Chapters must have made an application within the academic year to the Chapter Spotlight program.
NEHS chapters that have made applications to the Chapter Spotlight must be in good standing with NEHS at the time this award is given.
Chapter Spotlight Application Categories
This category will demonstrate how a chapter works to establish or maintain a project focused on supporting the academic growth of a target audience within their school or local community.
The purpose of this category is to demonstrate how NEHS chapters are focused on promoting life-long learning and the celebration of reading, writing, film, and the arts in their local community.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
This category will demonstrate how NEHS chapters are promoting diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in various forms within their school or local community.
The purpose of this category is to demonstrate how NEHS chapters are working with other NEHS chapters, other high school Honor Societies, or Sigma Tau Delta and Sigma Kappa Delta chapters on collaborative projects impacting their school or local community.
Winners should note that they will be required to provide a written report and photos detailing the impact the award has had on them, which can be used by NEHS to promote this and other awards in future years.
- All Chapter Spotlight submissions will automatically be entered into the Exemplary Chapter Project Award and will be evaluated by the NEHS Advisory Council.
- Awards will be given purely based on merit, not based on the imperative that all funds should be spent annually.
