Junior Science and Humanities Symposium

Life Sciences Program


The Junior Science and Humanities Symposium
(JSHS) for Wyoming and Eastern Colorado

Regional: Thursday, March 24, 2016, at the University of Wyoming

JSHS is funded by the Army, Navy and Air Force of the United States of America in order to encourage high school students, grades 9 to 12, to enter college level studies in science and engineering. The students involved come from 48 regions from all parts of the United States, territories, and overseas military base high schools.

The JSHS gives high school students the opportunity to present their scientific research work in front of an audience in much the same way as they would at a professional science meeting. With only slides, overhead, Power Point or backboard they let the audience know what they have done in their chosen research area.

WHEN: 8 A.M. Thursday, March 24, 2016
WHERE: Hampton Inn, Laramie, Wyoming.

There will be only one presentation session (no concurrent sessions) and the number of presenters will be limited to a maximum of eighteen. Submitted papers will be evaluated and the presenters chosen from among them.

The following will be paid by your JSHS:

Rooms- Wednesday night and Thursday night. [For student speakers, chaperons (teachers, parents, etc.), and, if space permits, guest student observers.]

Meals- Breakfast and lunch Thursday and Friday, dinner Thursday [For student speakers, chaperons (teachers, parents, etc.), and guest student observers.]

*To be accepted: The student must submit a paper describing the science project the student wishes to present by Saturday, February 29, 2016.

Send paper to: Dr. Mark Lyford, JSHS Regional Director, Remember to email as a Microsoft Word file, but if necessary may come in another format or by postal mail or fax. If you have trouble meeting the deadline, email Dr. Lyford,
