The STANYS-supported New York State Science Honor Society is the first statewide science honor society. It was established in 1991 and is endorsed by both the New York State Science Supervisors Association (NYSSA) and the New York State Assembly.
Its purpose is to encourage interest in and understanding science and science-related careers and to recognize high school students’ academic achievements in science.
Members are enthusiastic about science, engage in science-related activities, demonstrate achievement in science learning and have a strong personal character.
