2016 Washington Junior Science &

Humanities Symposium

Thursday, March 10, and Friday, March 11, 2016
at Seattle Pacific University

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 School of Education at Seattle Pacific University, in cooperation with the Academy of Applied Science and the Army Research Office, the Office of Naval Research, and the Air Force Office of Scientific Research.

This is a two-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 53nd National Junior Science and Humanities Symposium. The 2016 National JSHS will be held in Dayton, Ohio - April 27 through 30, (more details to be posted on the National JSHS website later).  All of the top 5 WJSHS presenters will have an opportunity to either compete in the Oral Sessions on Thursday or in the Poster Competition on Friday.

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

The National Association of Secondary School Principals has placed JSHS on its 2015-16 National Advisory Listing of Student Contests and Activities.
