Chapters selected to compete for the National Civic Impact Award demonstrate:

Activism

Key to the JSA experience is engagement in the local and school community. This award recognizes JSA Chapters that display strong connections to their community by addressing issues such as homelessness, voter education, school safety, and many more.

Leadership

JSA builds leaders for today and tomorrow. This award recognizes Chapters that empower their members to take leadership roles, has a collaborative relationship with their Teacher Advisor, and encourages members to be involved in JSA at the state and national level.

Community Involvement

JSA Chapters promote engagement on their high school campus but are also encouraged to take their events and activities to the communities. To earn the National Civic Impact Award, the Chapter encourages members to organize and host activities like voter registration drives and attending local government meetings. Members also get involved with local education and community issues.
