The 2018–19 National Honor Society (NHS) Scholarship Program begins accepting applications on October 1! All NHS senior members in good standing will be eligible to apply. You will need your school affiliation number to complete this year’s adviser recommendation on the NHS Scholarship application. Your school affiliation number is 00042403.
Please note the revised timeline for this year’s application process. The revised timeline serves to aid in finalizing and notifying recipients of their award status earlier to support making final college acceptance decisions.
Student applications are due December 7.
Adviser, principal, and faculty recommendations are due December 14.
A total of $2 million will be awarded among 600 scholarship winners, with the national winner receiving $25,000. Visit www.nhs.us/scholarship to learn more.
You can help get your students ready by telling them to sign up for the October 1 webinar, “How to Shine in Your Scholarship Applications,” which will cover the ins and outs of what all scholarship organizations and programs are looking for, not just the NHS Scholarship.

Summer NHS Service Opportunities
Students are allowed to get a maximum of 5 NHS hours doing approved service projects over the summer. Those hours would count ONLY toward 1st quarter activities for the 2018-2019 school year. We currently have two approved activities.
- Working with the Special Needs Cheer Class at Forever Cheer
6792 Airport Rd, West Jordan, UT 84084, USA. See our google calendar for more info. You must sign in and out at Forever Cheer. Always call before you go to make sure the class is still being held. You will not get hours for just showing up if the class has been cancelled.
- Being a member of the Teen Advisory Board at the Bingham Creek Library. Applications are available at the library. You will be working with Angie Wager. She will be the one to sign off your hours on your service card.
These activities are NOT REQUIRED. They are just options for those kids that like to get a head start on service hours. We will have plenty of hours to work on during the year too so don’t feel pressure to do these things.
Disclosure and Fee Due May 11th
Students wishing to be a part of NHS for the 2018-2019 school year must turn in the signature page of the disclosure and a receipt for the $25 fee by Friday, May 11th. The fee must be paid in the main office. Staple the receipt and the signature page together and return to Mrs. Leggat in the media center. See Mrs. Leggat if you have any questions.

A Roar of Thanks
For 2 weeks, Copper Hills students donated food items including turkeys, boxed mashed potatoes, desserts, and so much more. On Tuesday, November 21st, they gathered and sorted all the food items and delivered boxes to 16 families in the community, with tons of food leftover to go to the CH pantry. Thank you so much to everyone who donated and helped with this project, it made such a difference in those family’s lives.

Members make ornaments out of paper that will go on a tree at the Festival of Trees.
NHS members tie blankets using the fleece donated by the members themselves. . The blankets were then donated to the humane society and the homeless closet at Copper Hills.
