The Massachusetts Junior Academy of Science was created in 2002 to provide the opportunity for high school students who have demonstrated excellence in research to attend the annual AJAS convention as junior delegates of the state of Massachusetts.

Junior Delegates are selected at the annual MAssJAS fall symposium which takes place in late October on the MIT campus.

To be eligible to participate in the symposium students must have placed FIRST at the MASS State Science fair, or participated in the International Science and Engineering fair , or be semifinalist at the INTEL science competition. In addition students must still be full-time high school students in Massachusetts. Current College students are not eligible to participate in the symposium unless they are enrolled as freshmen in a college or University in the state of Massachusetts.
