North Central Regional Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (JSHS)
The North Central Regional Junior Science & Humanities Symposium (JSHS) is a scientific research paper competition for high school students in Minnesota, South Dakota, and North Dakota. JSHS is a competition designed to encourage students to explore research topics in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
Students present their original research at JSHS and compete for scholarships, recognition, and awards. Top students are invited to participate in the National JSHS competition hosted by the Academy of Applied Science and sponsored by the Department of Defense. In 2015, National JSHS will be held in Washington, D.C.
The Minnesota Academy of Science has hosted the North Central Regional Junior Science & Humanities Symposium since 1968. The first National JSHS competition was held in 1962.
