There has been a need to recognize performing students in the society. Poorly performing students have been encouraged to do better through this means. Not only excelling students are rewarded ,but also members of society who are in progress of improving the society. Excelling student being rewarded with free scholarship and upcoming members in society being provided with free work tools is the main aim of such people. Several organizations have been in the quest of appreciating the good in the society. They have come to be known as honor societies. We shall look at some of these organizations and their activities.
One means of identifying the most performing students is through formation of clubs and requiring the members to achieve set objectives. The goals of the club have to be beneficial to the society as well as its members. There has to be a well-structured of inviting and registering members as well as a good way of appointing leaders. There should be a proper order of organization of leadership from the lowest level all the way upwards. However, every member should be given a duty to play. Most societies take advantage of the future life of young people and recruit them at a tender age the coach them as they grow.
So as to engage all its members, these clubs have to come up with numerous activities. Most commonly are tree planting activities, garbage collection, visiting the needy and taking care of wild animals. Most of these activities are brought about by a need in the society which the members have a solution to. When the solution is reached at, all the members are invited to act as a means of service to the society along with any other interested stakeholders. After a successful event, key players and participants of the event are recognized and rewarded. Members who contribute to the activity in a unique way are also recognized. The most improved members along with the most active members are recognized in the course.
The process of joining a honor society may be free or restricted. There are clubs that require specific qualifications to join but others only demand commitment and willingness. A good number of clubs normally expect a fee for joining them from their prospective members. These honor societies normally have an exclusive clothing that they put on to identify them.
They may also have extra paraphernalia such as badges and other symbols to identify them. Most societies have come up with websites so as to advertise their activities as well as communicate with their members. These websites also contain information about the already completed activities as well as the future plans. Any person interested about the activities of any honor society is free to visit these sites.
