  •  Completed at least three marking periods of the 7th grade year at CDW (unless student moves into district & has been inducted as a member in another district).

The National Junior Honor Society is the nation’s premier student recognition program.  CDW joins more than 20,000 Honor Society chapters across the nation recognizing outstanding students in the community.
