Non-membership extra-curricular activities can also be included along with appropriate years of participation. Do not include community service hours in this section. Each of these memberships or activities must have occurred after your last day of eighth grade. Students selected for entrance into NHS are expected to have a wide-range of involvement both on and off the LBHS campus. Please provide a brief description for each organization or activity explaining why you found it important, rewarding, and/or enjoyable.

It is highly recommended that applicants address any discipline incidents that may be on the student’s record. Applicants with any referrals for cheating that fail to address the incident in their application letter in detail will not be considered. **It is highly recommended that you type out your 1 page application letter in Microsoft Word and paste it into the Application Letter section.**
