Thank you for your interest in the 2020 Pacific Symposium for Science & Sustainability (PS3)! PS3 serves as a regional competition for students to advance to the Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (JSHS), a national program funded by the United States Departments of the Army, Navy, Air Force and sponsored by the Academy of Applied Science. Five finalists will be selected from the regional PS3 competition held on January 19-20 at the Ala Moana Hotel to advance to the National competition in the Spring.

Please read our PS3 2020 Instructions and the PS3 2020 Handbook for detailed information about applying to the regional symposia. We are now only accepting experimental research papers, NO library-research papers. Should your project/paper place at our Regional PS3 competition, only experimental research projects can advance to the National JSHS.

Please complete the registration form below to begin your application. If you need me to make revisions to your registration after you’ve already submitted, please email us. Papers and Abstracts will not be accepted from students who fail to complete an application form. Registration will close on October 31, 2019.
