Société Honoraire de Français

Motto of the SHF:
« Avoir une autre langue, c’est posséder une deuxième âme »

SHF Basics 
No worries! There are three basic requirements to starting and maintaining an active SHF chapter.
These steps and requirements are laid out in detail on the "SHF at Your School" page here (which is also linked above in the tab navigation under the same name) - we recommend bookmarking this!
The Société Honoraire de Français (SHF) is the National French Honor Society for high schoolers. The local high school chapter provides a vehicle to focus activities around French language and Francophone literatures and cultures, and to encourage participation in the annual writing contest and travel grant competition.  In addition, students can acquire leadership skills by serving as officers, directing the initiation ceremony, or leading other chapter events.
The establishment of a chapter of the Société Honoraire de Français offers several benefits to a secondary French program.   It provides an opportunity to recognize outstanding scholarship in the study of French, to place a special seal on the graduate’s diploma, to wear a tri-colored cord or a stole at graduation, and to wear the honor society’s official regalia.
