What is an Avenger?

The Highest Honor given to a Next Jumper

The Avengers Award is focused on the trait of "service for others" and recognizes the Next Jumper who most exemplifies steward-leadership. The ideal candidate is someone who creates an environment that helps others succeed by caring for and serving those around them, someone who is always helping others and putting the group before self. It is an annual peer-nominated award at Next Jump. We will name the 2018 Avenger at the ceremony on August 3.
