NSHSS Ambassadors are student leaders within their high schools who exhibit academic excellence and strong commitment to community service. As role models, Ambassadors are encouraged to inspire their peers to explore new initiatives within their high schools and communities by organizing community service projects and gatherings with fellow members to support the vision of NSHSS.
Ambassadors interact with each other by participating in activities such as Earth Day, AFS-USA National Day of Service and National Bully Prevention month, or other initiatives that are important to their local communities. NSHSS shares the stories of our Ambassadors at our member events held throughout the year, through social media, and in our Scholar’s Journal.
Ambassadors are responsible for playing a vital role in communicating with current and prospective members about how to make the most of membership in the Society through social media and their school network. Each Ambassador receives an official kit welcoming them to the program with information regarding their full list of responsibilities and an exclusive NSHSS Ambassador t-shirt.
Ambassadors receive preference in participating in member events and also have the opportunity to compete for the $1,000 Ambassador Scholar Awards made available only to our senior Ambassadors each Spring.
