The National JSHS Competition is Coming Up!

Iowa City, IA (AP Newswire) – The Junior Science and Humanities Symposium, a jointly sponsored program between the Academy of Applied Science, the US Dept. of Defense and leading universities across the nation, will be holding their national symposium in Bethesda, Maryland May 2-6.  Every year more than 10,000 students participate in regional symposia hosted by universities in every state, Puerto Rico, Europe and DOD schools across the Pacific.  Students present their original research and the top 5 qualifiers from each region go on to compete at the national symposium.  The finalists in both the regional and national symposia receive undergraduate tuition scholarships and have a chance to interact with their peers and with leading researchers and educators from a wide variety of disciplines.  The Iowa regional symposium was held on the campus of The University of Iowa March 1-2.  The five finalists representing Iowa at the national symposium are from Central Lee High School, Maharishi University of Management, Iowa Mathematics and Science Academy and Rivermont Collegiate.
