Student leaders make significant contributions to the climate and culture of their schools and communities, and it’s important to celebrate that! National Student Leadership Week (NSLW) is an annual theme-based week dedicated to recognizing and supporting the vital role of student leaders. Since its origin stemming from a U.S. Presidential proclamation in 1972, NSLW has been a national celebration of students sponsored by National Honor Society, National Junior Honor Society, and National Student Council. As part of the week, chapters and councils are encouraged to plan a special project to show how their work and ingenuity positively impacts the school and community.
National Student Leadership Week (NSLW) 2021 took place from April 18–24 and celebrated the theme, “Leadership Unlimited.” NSLW 2021 celebrated amazing students who gave their all to lead their schools and communities during a time of uncertainty.
Join us for next year’s NSLW from April 17–23, 2022.
