Recognizing the need to help middle level students jump-start their quest toward higher education, the National Junior Honor Society offers the annual NJHS Outstanding Achievement Award (OAA). The award recognizes 500 exceptional NJHS students with $500, to be placed in a college savings account program-managed by Ascensus as part of the New Mexico Education Trust Board’s 529 college savings plan: The Education Plan. The deadline for NJHS OAA applications has now passed and the application portal is closed. This year’s recipients were notified by email in May 2021.
The 2022 NJHS OAA application process will open in January 2022. Eligible NJHS members should create their student account at www.njhs.us/studentaccount. All applicants must have a verified NJHS student account in order to apply for the award in January 2022.
