The NHS chapter from Cloverleaf High School in Lodi, OH, was one of eight schools to pay it forward in the 2016–17 school year, winning $100 to donate to the Alzheimer’s Association in our #MakingGlobalChange Instagram contest. Show us how your council or chapter is thinking globally and acting locally to make a difference in your school or community. Visit to learn more.

Does your school’s student council have a Snapchat account for the new school year yet? Snapchat is a great way to show off where and when student council members are active around school and out in their communities. Share your student council’s snaps with local businesses and teachers to get the attention of others near and dear to your students and their school!

It’s never too early to #HonorYourFutureNow. In fact, you’ve already gotten started by sharing your NJHS and NHS acceptance letters on social media. Now it’s time to #Prep4College by joining the first college admission planning webinar of the school year on September 27, “Applying to College: What You Need to Know Now.”

Spirit week will likely be upon you soon! We’ve all heard of Twin Day, Tie-Dye Day, and Pajama Day, but we want to see what’s new for spirit week at your school this year. Share your favorite original spirit week ideas with us on social media this September and October, and we’ll let you know which are our favorites.

How did you welcome your students back this year? Consider this: There are many ways to say hello in numerous languages all over the world. Display a few of them outside of your classroom’s entrance to get your students thinking globally before they even sit down.
