Welcome to the South Carolina Junior Science and Humanities Symposia (JSHS) Program. The University of South Carolina is host to the 2017 Regional JSHS symposium held January 20, 2017 in Columbia, SC.
<< CLICK HERE TO REGISTER >>
JSHS is designed to challenge, engage, and publicly recognize students (Grades 9-12) conducting research in the sciences, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM). Individual students compete for scholarships and recognition by presenting the results of their original research efforts before a panel of judges and an audience of their peers. Opportunities for career exploration, research lab visits, peer discussions, and networking are planned. By participating in regional and national symposia, students may:
Who attends JSHS?
South Carolina high school students interested in STEM studies can participate either as a presenter or as a student delegate. Up to 20 high school students and one teacher from each high school may participate.
Who can present at the Regional JSHS?
Any high school student from the South Carolina region may submit a paper for consideration.
How do I present at the Regional JSHS?
What if my abstract is not accepted?
Students whose research submission is not accepted for presentation at the Regional JSHS but is complete and meets all paper format guidelines will automatically be invited to attend as a student delegate or poster presenter.
Students who are selected to make presentations at the South Carolina JSHS have an opportunity to win undergraduate, tuition-based scholarships and cash awards from $200 to $2,000.
The Academy of Applied Sciences will distribute $4,500 in academic scholarships to the top three regional finalists:
The top five finalists are invited to advance to the National JSHS. Two of the five finalists will orally present their research in competition for military-sponsored scholarships; three of the five finalists will present their research in poster sessions and receive recognition and cash awards. National JSHS scholarships are awarded as follows.

JSHS 2017 Guidelines to Sumit a Research Paper
The paper should be a minimum of 5-6 pages and a maximum of 20 pages (double space, one side only) including appendices. Deadline is Friday, December 2, 2016.
A recommended outline for the research paper includes:
Please submit the original and three (3) copies of your research paper. Also submit an original abstract and three (3) copies of your abstract. Only use one side of each page. Do not send in a copy using the back and front of the paper. In addition, email a PDF copy of the paper and abstract to Don Jordan, firstname.lastname@example.org. (PDF requirement is important!) Start the name of the PDF document with the Student's Name, High School, then Category. Example: John Doe, Lex HS, Chemistry.

JSHS is a Tri-Service – U.S. Army, Navy and Air Force −program that encourages high school students to conduct original research in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). JSHS is a collaborative effort between the research arm of the Department of Defense and nationwide colleges and universities. JSHS aims to prepare and support students to contribute as future scientists and engineers, conducting STEM research on behalf of or directly for the Department of Defense (DoD), federal research laboratories to help advance the nation's scientific and technological progress. Through JSHS, over 8,000 youth annually compete in 48 regional symposia covering the U.S., Puerto Rico, and DoD Dependent Schools in Europe and the Pacific to receive recognition, incentives, and scholarships for their research achievements.
The Academy of Applied Science, a non-profit educational organization in Concord, New Hampshire, administers the National JSHS Program. The regional JSHS at the University of South Carolina is co-operatively sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences and the Center for Science Education.
