The NJHS Outstanding Achievement Award

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.

The award recognizes 500 exceptional NJHS students with $500, to be placed in a college savings account program-managed by Oppenheimer Funds (OFI Private Investments) as part of the New Mexico Education Trust Board’s 529 college savings plan: The Education Plan.

Applications for the NJHS OAA are being accepted through 5:00 pm (PT) on March 11, 2020. Once student members in good standing have a verified account, they can begin the application process.
