  • Create Your Own Nobel Day Celebration and Earn a Scholarship to Scholar's Day D.C. in 2020!

    As an official NSHSS Ambassador, we encourage you to flex your creativity and leadership skills by collaborating with other students, NSHSS members, and your community by organizing your very own Nobel Day celebration. The three ambassadors with the best project will earn a scholarship to travel to NSHSS Scholar's Day 2020 in Washington D.C. This scholarship will include travel and accommodations. Submit your activity and be a shining example of what it means to be an NSHSS ambassador!

    What is Nobel Day?

    NSHSS was founded by Mr. Claes Nobel, senior member of the NObel Prize family and the great-grand nephew of Alfred Nobel. Mr. Claes created NSHSS to recognize and empower young, brilliant students of the world and to build upon the legacy that Alfred established with the Nobel Prize. Every winter, on December 10th, the laureates of the Nobel Prize receive recognition for their academic, scientific, and cultural achievements during the Nobel Prize Ceremony. This special day has been affectionately named "Nobel Prize Day."

    In honor of this profound legacy, NSHSS hosts an annual Nobel Week in Stockholm, Sweden, in which NSHSS students explore the city of Stockholm, listen to lectures from actual Nobel laureates, and participate in the festivities surrounding the Nobel Prize. You can learn more about the program taking place December 5-10, 2019 here.

    How NSHSS Ambassadors Celebrated Nobel Day 

    You can also be part of the Nobel festivities by creating your Nobel Day celebration in your community or school! That's what our NSHSS ambassadors in Hong Kong. HKCCCU Logos Academy did in November, 2018. The students hosted a 2-day event named “Nobel Days” full of fun games, learning activities, and delicious Swedish snacks for students while spreading the importance of recognizing academic excellence in NSHSS with the theme of the Nobel Prizes. The festivities also emphasized encouraging students to be leaders of change in creating a better world. The chapter collaborated with five other school clubs related to the Nobel Prize categories (ie, Chemistry Club=Chemistry Prize) for themed games and prizes. 

    NOTE: You can replicate the Logos Academy event or take the opportunity to organize an event or activity of your own creation and imagination! The recommended time for this activity is anytime during the months of November-December 2019.

As role models, Ambassadors are encouraged to inspire their peers to explore new initiatives within their high schools and communities by organizing community service projects and gatherings with fellow members to support the vision of NSHSS.

    Ambassadors are responsible for playing a vital role in communicating with current and prospective members about how to make the most of membership in the Society through social media and their school network. Each Ambassador receives an official kit welcoming them to the program with information regarding their full list of responsibilities and an exclusive NSHSS Ambassador t-shirt.
