New Jersey Junior Science & Humanities Symposium (NJJSHS) at Rutgers University

March 1, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

The New Jersey Junior Science & Humanities Symposium (NJJSHS) at Rutgers University is an annual research fair held at Rutgers University that celebrates high school students’ novel investigations in science, engineering, and mathematics. 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. In order to be eligible for participation, you must be a high school student who lives in New Jersey. The NJJSHS is a regional competition of the Junior Science and Humanities Symposia (JSHS).

The JSHS Program is a tri-service – U.S. Army, Navy, and Air Force – sponsored STEM competition that promotes original research and experimentation in the sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) at the high school level and publicly recognizes students for outstanding achievement. By connecting talented students, their teachers, and research professionals at affiliated symposia and by rewarding research excellence, JSHS aims to widen the pool of trained talent prepared to conduct research and development vital to our nation.

Endorsed by the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), JSHS regional and national symposium are held during the academic year and reach more than 8,000 high school students and teachers throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, and the Department of Defense Schools of Europe and the Pacific Rim. Students must first participate in their regional symposia where they compete for selection to present at the national symposium each year. National Website: http://www.jshs.org.

This year, the symposium will take place virtually. The regional symposium will celebrate a group of top oral and poster presenters for their admittance into the National Junior Science & Humanities Symposium.
