National Honor Society State Summits

At each state summit, more than 150 students gather together for a hands-on experiential leadership development program designed to cultivate empowerment and leadership skills. Organized by the National Association of Secondary School Principals, the day-long program is more of “think-tank” event than “talking heads.” Students are asked and encouraged to be fully present, voicing their ideas at the table, as they hear from state leaders on hot-button issues.

Leadership competency workshops offered include effective and persuasive communication, digital and social media, and project and team management; these are all highly participatory sessions. Then students deep dive into one of 3 global issues — conservation, global citizenship, and learning environments. Working with advisers and facilitators, they apply what they’ve learned and address a challenge for their school using design thinking strategies.
