What is the National Technical Honor Society?

It is the acknowledged leader in the recognition of outstanding student achievement in career and technical education.

Thousands of schools and colleges throughout the U.S. and its territories have a chapter of the honor society on their campus. These member schools agree that NTHS encourages higher scholastic achievement, cultivates a desire for personal excellence, and helps top students find success in today's highly competitive workplace.

More simply put, it is something you can put on your resume that says you are amazing! Additionally, it is a great way to network with other students in the school and to become an active member in the community.

We have created a chapter at the DATC for our NTHS members where we participate in community service projects, educational and skills training for post-education success, and support each other as we all progress on our educational journey. Students often find it helpful to use the club as a resource, to find solutions to problems other members have faced, and for general support and guidance.

What do I need to do now?

Attend the orientation on the date and time indicated in your nomination letter. You can review information available on the national site. If you have any questions, please write them down and ask at the orientation or email your NTHS officers at From there you will fill out an application, pay the processing fee, be a part of an induction ceremony, and then attend your first NTHS meeting. All the details will be covered in the orientation, so don’t worry about the details.

If you have any questions about anything that the NTHS is involved with, please do contact us, we love hearing from members and prospective members!
