JSHS application open for one week

Posted on Friday, November 12, 2021 by for JSHS, Seniors.

Applications are now being accepted for the New York City Metro Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (JSHS). Anyone with a research report that is finished (or even just close enough) can enter. Teams can enter together, but only one team member presents.

The application is done through a web form. You type your info into the fields, upload a PDF of your latest and greatest research report, upload some additional forms and other documentation, and then hit the "submit" button. Easy peasy. This has to be completed in the Research Room with me witnessing it on or before Friday, November 19. (Don't blame me for the short notice, this is how they operate.) Completing the application is worth +4 points of extra credit.

The top 120 projects will be invited to York College to present at the Symposium on Sunday, February 6, 2022. If COVID restrictions are still in effect at CUNY campuses in February, the event will be held virtually. Presenting at the Symposium will be worth +10 points. In the case of team projects, the presenter will get +10 points and the other team members will receive +5 points.

Contact me quickly if you are interested in applying. I have paperwork to do that requires the Principal's signature (JSHS Form C) and I am not doing it on the day it's due. If you are working with a mentor, you also need their signature on one form (JSHS Form B). They would probably appreciate it if you contacted them as soon as possible. They would probably appreciate it even more if you partially filled out the form for them. There is also a form for projects involving human subjects (JSHS Form A), but you can give them your IRB form instead.

Read the Student Registration page for details on what is needed for the application. Contact me if you have questions.
