National Spanish Honor Society
SOCIEDAD HONORARIA HISPÁNICA OVERVIEW The Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica (SHH) is an honor society for high school students enrolled in Spanish and/or Portuguese, sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese (AATSP). The SHH was formally organized as the Spanish National Honor Society in 1953. The name was changed to Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica in 1959. At present there are more than 2,000 national and international chapters of the SHH. The mission of the Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica is to recognize high school achievement in Spanish and Portuguese and to promote interest in Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian studies. Any secondary school student who has maintained an honor average in the study of Spanish or Portuguese for a minimum of three semesters and is in the 10th grade or higher is eligible to be a member of the SHH. The definition of "honor grade” is left to the discretion of each chapter. It should be remembered that the SHH is an honor society for those students of high academic achievement. Students who have maintained an honor average in the study of Spanish for a minimum of three semesters and are in the 10th grade or higher are invited to join. Students maintain a 90 average throughout Spanish classes and complete 30 hours of Spanish related activities.
Membership Requirements: Students should be a sophomore, junior, or senior currently taking a Spanish class. Students must have a 90 average for each year of Spanish and must have enrollment in the second semester of Spanish II or higher.
