IF you participated in the TOUR de NORTH PORT, please click here for a message from the Sponsor!
Student members of NJHS are required to earn a total of 15 community service hours during the school year. Community service is defined as volunteering your time within the community at large or the PV community. We ask that students not "double-dip" - meaning that hours earned should not be used to satisfy requirements a student may have with multiple organizations (such as Boy/Girl Scouts, etc.)
Each year, the top three members earning the highest number of community service hours are recognized with the National Junior Honor Society Grand Medallion.
