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?
High school students interested in STEM studies can participate either as a presenter or as a student delegate.
Who can present at the Regional JSHS?
Any high school student from New Jersey 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.

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 Ocean County College is co-operatively sponsored by the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences and the College of Life Science.
