TJSHS is an annual scientific research competition that gives high school students the opportunity to present original research in a public forum. The top three winners receive scholarships, which can be used at any college or university upon graduation, and the top two TJSHS winners will receive an all expense-paid trip to attend the national JSHS and compete for additional scholarships.

The TJSHS features oral and poster presentations judged by top faculty researchers at UT Knoxville. Attending students and teachers will have the chance to visit research laboratories at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the University of Tennessee. Participants will learn about cutting-edge research and meet internationally renowned researchers.

Whether you are a high school student who has conducted an original research project; a high school student who is interested in pursuing a career in science, engineering, technology, or mathematics; or a high school teacher who has mentored a student in his or her research, you have an opportunity to participate in the TJSHS!
