Arkansas Regional Junior Science and Humanities Symposium


Dear Arkansas Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (AJSHS) participants, 
Due to several regional and national factors, we have made the very difficult decision that it is in the best interest of the community to cancel/postpone the 2020 AJSHS that was supposed to take place March 13-14. 
We are working on alternate plans for AJSHS. What I can tell you for sure is that the National event has been canceled in-person but will be held virtually. AJSHS will still be selecting the regional winners that will compete virtually "at" Nationals. I am working with the AJSHS judges to decide how we will proceed to pick the finalist for nationals from the students that were planning to give oral presentations this weekend.  Additionally, I will discuss the fate of the poster session with the poster judges. I will send an update regarding both matters as soon as we have the details worked out. 
The time and effort everyone has put into this event is appreciated and we do not want all of your  hard work to be for nothing. Please let me know if you have any questions. 
Jessica Young
Director, AJSHS

The 2020  arkansas JSHS will be held march 13-14

The Arkansas Regional Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (AJSHS) serves as a regional qualifier for the National Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (JSHS) and is typically held the 2nd full weekend of March  each year on the campus of Arkansas Tech University.


What is the National JSHS Program?

The Junior Science and Humanities Symposia (JSHS) promote original research and experimentation in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) disciplines at the high school level and publicly recognize students for outstanding achievement in these fields. 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.
