Describe the Activity: 

JSHS regional symposia invite the participation of all high school students who have completed an original research investigation in the sciences, engineering, or mathematics, to apply to the regional symposium and vie for awards and recognition, including the opportunity to advance to the National symposium. All students in grades 9-12, enrolled in public, private, or home schools within the area served by the JSHS regional symposium are eligible. Investigations reporting on experimental, field, observational, or applied research are eligible. While review or library research is a part of the research process, these investigations alone are not appropriate.
