The Junior Science and Humanities Symposia

The Junior Science and Humanities Symposia (JSHS) program is jointly sponsored by the United States Departments of Army, Navy, and Air Force, in cooperation with leading research universities throughout the nation.

The primary aims of JSHS are to promote original research and experimentation in science, engineering, and mathematics at the high school level, and publicly recognize students for outstanding achievement.  The JSHS provides a forum for high school students to present the results of their original research. Students who participate in the Symposia also have the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas, interact with practicing researchers, and explore future academic and career opportunities.
