This competition has not yet posted any deadlines.

JSHS is designed to challenge and engage students (Grades 9-12) in science, 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 hands-on workshops, panel discussions, career exploration, research lab visits and networking are planned.

JSHS is a collaborative effort with the research arm of the Department of Defense and administered in cooperation with 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, the Federal research laboratories, or for the greater good in advancing the nation's scientific and technological progress.

Submit written reports of original research efforts after which top submissions will be required to make a presentation at the live symposium for the top awards.

At the Regional Symposia, the first round of judging will occur where the students’ written reports are reviewed by a scientist or expert in the field. Resulting from this review, selected students are invited to orally deliver their research before the Regional Symposium. Selected presentations will represent the finest efforts of high school students in the state or region toward either original laboratory research, field research, or applied research. Judging of the oral presentations is the final step to select student delegates who will advance to the National JSHS.

At National, student research presentations will be organized in concurrent sessions by discipline. Military-sponsored undergraduate, tuition-based scholarships and other awards will be made to 1st place finalists and runner-up finalists from each of eight (8) final sessions.

Judging criteria.

Regional and National judges evaluate the oral presentations using the below criteria. National judges rank each of the presentations based on the criteria and using a scale from 1 to 5. The scores are tallied for each presenter and used as the basis for discussion among judging team members where each criterion is considered.

  • Statement and identification of research problem
  • Scientific thought, creativity/innovation, appropriate duration
  • Research or engineering design and procedures
  • Logical conclusion relevant to the research problem. What was learned? Did student recognize contribution to the field?
  • Skill in communicating results
  • References stated
