Rho Kappa National Social Studies Honor Society
Students are nominated on the basis of a teacher recommendation and a minimum GPA of 3.0. Those students nominated are asked to submit an application, teacher recommendation form, and an essay. The application asks students to list their extra-curricular activities and community service work. Students also are asked to submit an essay that discusses their interest in the social studies. The essay should provide examples of the significance of social studies to the student’s lives and possible contributions they will make to the organization. Final determination for membership rests on a combination of teacher recommendation, extra-curricular activities/community service, and the essay.
