High School students create their own music video clips which are presented in a unique night of laughter. The most creative, funny, original, technological, and most embarrassing videos win a prize. 

Lunch Tournaments:
Is there a better way to spend the lunch hour than playing your favorite sport? Throughout the year, NHS sponsors the organization of soccer, dodge ball and armwrestling tournaments. Make a couple of goals, baskets, or aces, and in two months, a family will have a new house.

Bake Sales:
Taste the unique flavor of the NHS bakery. Following the school’s nutrition restrictions to the letter, the NHS Bake Sale ensures you a wonderful dessert without the anguish or guilt of filling your body with calories . Stay tuned, because a Bake Sale might come any time soon.
