ARLINGTON, Va.—May 2, 2019—The Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (JSHS), the premier showcase for science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) research by high school students, is pleased to announce the 2019 winners of the 57th National JSHS competition.

Army, Navy, and Air Force—sponsored competition gives students (grades 9–12) a chance to present original scientific research in a public forum and compete for scholarships and cash awards, while participating in hands-on workshops, panel discussions, career explorations, and research lab visits.

The national winners, announced last Saturday at the awards luncheon and ceremony in Albuquerque, New Mexico, first presented their original scientific research at one of 47regional competitions hosted by universities and colleges in the U.S., Puerto Rico, and Department of Defense (DoD) Schools of Europe and the Pacific Rim.

The top five students from each region—230high school students in total—then participated in oral or poster presentations at the national event.

The first and second place regional finalists competed for a chance to earn scholarships ranging from $4,000 to $12,000, while the third, fourth, and fifth place regional finalists competed in the poster competition for a chance to win cash awards.

“The National JSHS Competition winners feature some of the country’s brightest young scientists and engineers, who are conducting phenomenal research,”
