The Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (JSHS) is designed to challenge and engage students (grades nine through twelve) in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM). Individual students may apply to compete for scholarships and recognition by present­ing the results of their STEM projects before a panel of judges and an audience of their peers. Opportunities for hands-on workshops, panel discussions, career exploration, research lab visits and networking benefit participating students. JSHS regional symposia are held at 48 nationwide university campuses and serve students in the 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the DoD Dependents Schools, Europe and Pacific.

Regional Symposia locations in the DMV include Georgetown University, University of Marlaynd and James Madison University.
