Oregon Junior Science & Humanities Symposium is sponsored by the US Army, Navy, and Air Force and is open to all High School Students from the state of Oregon who are US Citizens. Students will submit summaries of their independent research. After the submission deadline the judges will blindly review each summary and select twelve student semifinalists to present their research at the 2019 Oregon JSHS held at the Evergreen Aviation Museum in McMinnville, OR. The semifinalist will be competing for the chance to win scholarships and a paid trip to the National JSHS. Every student that submits a Research Summary is invited to the symposium, where students and mentors will be staying overnight under the famed "Spruce Goose," while exploring ideas in engineering, aviation, and technology. We will also be building and launching our own rockets. 


The top five student presenters will be chosen to go on to the National Competition in April 2019. To learn more about the competition, visit the National JSHS website
