Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (JSHS) is a tri-service sponsored STEM competition for high school students enrolled in
grades 9-12 who engage in research investigations in the sciences, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM). Students are invited to compete in an affiliated JSHS regional symposium and may win the opportunity to advance to the National JSHS.

Students who wish to apply to JSHS should contact the JSHS regional symposium director in their area to obtain application guidelines and materials and be prepared to:
 submit a written report (e.g. abstract and/or paper) of the completed research investigation for review by a regional panel of judges;
 submit a "Statement on Outside Assistance," which states your role in the conduct of the research investigation, describes any outside assistance received, and attests to the proper conduct of research procedures and protocols in any research involving
vertebrate animals or human subjects; deliver a concise oral presentation to the symposium;
 complete registration and/or application materials;
 comply with regional and national rules and policies that apply to the preparation of the written reports and the oral presentations.
The written and oral reports should present the results of the student’s original research investigation.

Students apply online and provide their research plan & abstract. Those submissions are initially vetted for compliance to competition rules around format and content of documents submitted. Submissions moving on then require students to submit their technical paper and PowerPoint slide deck at a specified date prior to on-site competition. At the event, participants do an oral presentation of their project using their slide deck in front of a panel of judges in the first round. The top 10 presenters are identified and they present orally in a final round.

Regional and National judges evaluate students’ 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
