Since the beginning of 2013, at Eisenhower High School
in Shelby Township, MI, any student who receives a
100 percent on a quiz or test receives a "100 percent slip"
from his or her teacher. At the end of each month, all
100 percent slips are entered into a drawing. The student
council vice president pulls two winners who receive a gift
card and are announced on the school news. This project
supports Eisenhower students and motivates them to
succeed on tests and quizzes.
After some disappointing canned food drives, the student
council at Yukon High School in Yukon, OK, decided
to stimulate interest by regularly participating in a local
canned food sculpture contest. They select a shape to create,
and then build it at school with the food and funds provided
by students. "The items we have built include a replica of
our hometown flour mill, the space shuttle, a tank, a roller
coaster, a Chinook helicopter, an American tribute with a
wall of remembrance, the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, a fire
truck, and a police car-and last year, a full-size Hummer,"
says adviser Darryl Andrews.
NHS students at Randolph Central School in Randolph, NY,
participated in a local Making Strides Against Breast Cancer
walk. The students individually collected money from
sponsors, each aiming for $100. The district also hosted a
Pink Out! Day, where all faculty, staff, and students (grades
K-12) were encouraged to wear as much pink as possible and
donate anywhere from 25 cents to one dollar. All together,
this NHS chapter collected and donated over $800 for breast

Accommodating both bargain hunters and those who
want to get rid of old household items, NHS members at
Metropolitan Christian High School in Dallas, TX, hosted
a giant "garage" sale in the parking lot of their school.
Members divided the parking lot into spaces and charged
people a fee to set up their items for sale. After paying the
fee, any proceeds the seller made were his or hers to keep.
NHS raised additional funds by selling refreshments and
holding a car wash during the sale.
