Arkansas Regional Junior Science
and Humanities Symposium

The Symposium serves as a regional qualifier for the National Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (JSHS), which is a program supported by the United States Armed Services to promote original research and experimentation in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) disciplines at the high school level and publicly recognize outstanding young students for their achievements in these fields. By connecting talented young students and their teachers with research professionals in the STEM disciplines, JSHS aims to widen the pool of talent prepared to conduct the research and development vital to the advancement of our nation. The Arkansas Regional Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (AJSHS) is run by Dr. Jessica P.C. Young (Assistant Professor of Physics at Arkansas Tech University) and is held in March of each year on the campus of Arkansas Tech University.
