North Central Regional JSHS
An Excellence Program in our Access to Excellence Continuum
March 23, 2019
As an EXCELLENCE program, the North Central Regional Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (JSHS) promotes original research and experimentation in the sciences, engineering, and mathematics at the high school level, and publicly recognizes students for outstanding achievement. JSHS aims to widen the pool of trained talent prepared to conduct vital research and development.
The first National JSHS competition was held in 1962. Since 1968, the Minnesota Academy of Science (MAS) has hosted the North Central Regional JSHS. Today it is an important part of our our continuum of K-12 science education programming (Access to Excellence).
Because JSHS is sponsored in part by the U.S. Army, which has strict privacy rules, MAS cannot list winners by name or school.
