Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica (SHH)

What is the SHH?

The Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica (SHH) is an honor society for high school students enrolled in Spanish and Portuguese and is sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese.

The purpose of the society is to recognize high achievement of high school students in the Spanish and Portuguese languages and to promote a continuing interest in Hispanic and Portuguese studies. Any secondary school student who has maintained an honor average in the study of Spanish or Portuguese for a minimum of three semesters and is in the 10th grade or higher is eligible.

If you are interested in starting a chapter or have any questions, please contact our SHH Coordinator Jessica Swemke at She would be happy to discuss Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica via email, phone, or over a cup of café con leche. Here is a link with some files to help you get started. We also invite you to like the SHH Advisor Facebook page, which is a great place to ask questions and get information.
