JSHS Application Procedure
  1. Please read through instructions first!

  2. Check out the guidelines before submitting your application. Presenters, please be sure to use the guidelines and hints for improving abstracts and presentations.

  3. Although you do not need to submit a paper with your application, you will need to immediately submit a paper to the National JSHS if you are chosen to compete at the national level. First and second place presenters at the WV-JSHS compete at the National JSHS. This means that each presenter MUST bring an electronic copy of a written paper with you to the WV-JSHS so that you can submit your paper to National if you are chosen to compete there. Your paper must follow the guidelines for papers at the National JSHS website. First and second-place presenters will need to register for the National JSHS before you leave the WV-JSHS. Be sure to discuss this with your parents prior to the WV-JSHS!

  4. Students, download the student application and parental permission form whether you are presenting or participating without entering the competition. Teachers or other accompanying adults, download the adult registration form.

  5. Fill in your application form and email it as an attachment to wvjshs@wvwc.edu . Presenters, be sure your abstract meets the 200-word limit, with the font in 10- or 12-pt. Times New Roman. This will allow you to upload your abstract without editing to the National JSHS if you are selected to compete at that level. Please contact Dr. Jeanne Sullivan (wvjshs@wvwc.edu; 304-473-8125) if you do not receive an email confirming receipt of your application within 48 hours!

  6. Download a copy of the parental permission and medical authorization form by clicking here. Save a copy to your own computer and print it out. Fill out the form, including parental signatures, and turn it in when you register at the Symposium. A completed parental permission and medical authorization form is required for participants in the WV-JSHS. Students without the form cannot participate, so donít forget to bring your form with you!
