Great Lakes learning for UP students

We are actively planning for the Wisconsin and Upper Peninsula of Michigan Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (JSHS). This event is sponsored by the National Science Teachers Association, the U.S. Armed Forces, and University of Wisconsin-La Crosse (UWL). Our goal is to spread the word to as many potential participants as possible and we would love to have additional participation from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan!

This program is of benefit to both teachers and high school students and provides the opportunity to earn very generous scholarships, is a qualifying event for the National JSHS, and even offers a teacher award.

Students in 9–12 grade are encouraged to share their original research (e.g., experimental, field, observational, applied) during a 12-minute oral presentation or poster presentation. Research presented at the regional JSHS competition can align with any of the following eight categories:
1. Chemistry
2. Biomedical Science
3. Engineering
4. Environmental Science
5. Life Sciences
6. Math & Computer Science
7. Medicine and Health
8. Physical Science

Students attending the regional symposium for the second time are required to present a research project orally or in a poster session. The top ten research papers will be given the opportunity to present orally for scholarships. First time attendees are not expected to present a project, though they are encouraged to do so, if desired. All students who attend the regional JSHS must be chaperoned by a teacher or adult.

Additional information/deadlines/registration can be found on our website: https://www.uwlax.edu/ex/jshs/
