Chapter Annual Report
The NEHS constitution requires chapters to complete their Chapter Annual Report/Survey each spring. To date, 638 reports have been completed. We request all surveys be completed by July 1, 2020. If you have not received your survey, please check your junk or spam folders. Contact nehs@niu.edu if you have questions.
 
Service Project—Imagination Library
A huge "shout out" of thanks to these NEHS chapters for their participation in the Imagination Library Service Project: Morton Ranch High School, Katy, TX, (Advisor Karen Austin) raised $500 and Westlake High School, Thornwood, NY, (Advisor Christopher D’Ippolito) raised $100. Proceeds from this Service Project go to the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, with a goal to provide high-quality, age-appropriate books to all children, regardless of their family's financial situation, from infancy to kindergarten. The Imagination Library has mailed over 120 million books to children in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Australia!
