We invite all interested Washington State high school students in grades 9-12 to participate in the Washington Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (WJSHS), which is sponsored by the Department of Neurology at the University of Washington, in cooperation with the National Science Teachers Association and the Army Research Office, the Office of Naval Research, and the Air Force Office of Scientific Research.

This is a one day event that provides high school students who have conducted original research in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics (STEM), with a forum to present their work to a panel of judges and an audience of high school students, teachers, parents, university faculty and students, and professional scientists.

WJSHS student presenters have the opportunity to win college scholarships, as well as the opportunity to attend and compete at the 57th National Junior Science and Humanities Symposium. More details to be posted on the National JSHS website later.  All of the top 5 WJSHS presenters in the Washington Oral competition will have an opportunity to either compete in the Oral Sessions or in the Poster Competition at the National Symposium.

Expenses for the Washington Regional WJSHS are subsidized by the National JSHS Office under contract with the University of Washington.

The National Association of Secondary School Principals has placed JSHS on its 2017-18 
National Advisory Listing of Student Contests and Activities.  NASSP 2017-18
