Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Science
In the Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Science, each student develops and completes an experimental study in one area of science, then presents her results and conclusions at the regional competition in a ten-minute oral presentation. Those who receive a first award may continue on to the state competition at Penn State University where they have the opportunity to win scholarships, special awards, and other coveted prizes.
