Student nominees must have contributed a substantial amount of time, effort, and creativity, and have a minimum GPA of 2.5.

Nominees must have exhibited an exceptional contribution to a humanitarian need.

Jane Addams Distinguished Service Award - presented to students whose volunteer activity substantially addresses a distinct need in the community along with inspiring others to engage in volunteer service. Individual recipients must be involved in the creation of a new project or service to address such a need, and must demonstrate the highest level of dedication and selfless commitment to volunteer service.

Activities Honorary Society (AHS) Induction - honors no more than 15 exemplary students each year for their demonstrated student leadership.
