NHS Candidates

Below is all of the paperwork that must be filled out completely and handed in on time. Print out everything, be sure to read it carefully, and make sure everything is accurately and fully completed. You may write in ink directly on the forms or type your work and attach it to the corresponding form. Your completed paperwork will be used by the anonymous Faculty Council to determine whether you meet the criteria of character, service, and leadership. Acceptance letters are delivered to homerooms in November.

Please put your completed paperwork into a folder with your name on the front. Be sure to put your paperwork in the order specified by the "Candidate Checklist for a Complete N.H.S. Packet."

*Incomplete, inaccurate, or late submissions may disqualify candidates from consideration*
