Pegasus Posted July 9, 2017 Share Posted July 9, 2017 (edited) How do you determine the value of the various honor societies? Some are genuine honors that are worth pursuing but they seem to be outnumbered by other organizations that are meaningless. . .like the "Notable High School Student" books that you pay to have your student's name published in. DD recently got an email invitation to join "Honor Society" (honorsociety.org) which sounds bogus to me. Wouldn't genuine honor societies have more descriptive names? This one is $100 per year and I want to tell DD to ignore/delete their invite, not worth pursuing. However, I wanted to check with the Hive. Is there a list somewhere of the honor societies that are well known and a true honor to be a member? EDITED TO ADD: Ok, a quick Google search confirms my suspicions on this particular honor society. They have been described as misleading and deceptive, if not an outright scam. My basic question still stands, how to determine a worthwhile honor society?
