About: The Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (JSHS) is designed to challenge and engage students (Grades 9-12) in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) research. 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.

JSHS invites high school students to report on the results of their original research investigations in STEM and compete for scholarships and recognition at university-held regional symposia. In Ohio, the symposium is annually held at Bowling Green State University and sponsored by BGSU and the Northwest Ohio Center for Excellence in STEM Education at BGSU.  All students in grades 9-12 enrolled in public, private, or home schools are eligible to participate in their local Regional Symposium. See Rules of Competition for eligibility details.

Application Information: Eligible students, may enter his or her research paper in the Ohio JSHS by submitting documentation of a personally conducted research study to the Director of the Ohio JSHS by the specific deadline. These papers are screened by professionals in their fields represented by the papers. Finalists are selected and subsequently present their papers at the annual OJSHS Symposium. We encourage all students to check detailed "Guidelines for Preparation and Presentation of Student Research" by logging on the National JSHS homepage. The research must be original, and must be performed by the high school student. The same paper may also be submitted to other science programs and symposia. A poster session will be available for students to present research work that is still in progress.

Students who have conducted an original research investigation in the sciences, engineering, or mathematics and who wish to present their research at a regional symposium must prepare and submit a written report (e.g. abstract and/or paper) according to the regional guidelines; and be prepared to orally deliver the results of their original research to the symposium.

A judging committee, formed by the regional symposium, reviews the written reports (e.g. abstract and/or paper) and selects students to orally present the results of their research investigation to the regional symposium audience. The judging continues during the oral presentations, and awards finalists are selected.

Many representatives from colleges, universities, and various industries want to provide experiences for secondary school students to conduct worthwhile scientific research. Many of these students present their research findings at the Ohio JSHS and then go on to the National JSHS.
