Encourage High School Seniors to Apply for National Youth Science Camp
Two high school seniors will receive a full scholarship to exchange ideas with scientists and other professionals from the academic and corporate worlds. The nearly month-long experience includes lectures and hands-on research projects presented by scientists from across the nation; overnight camping trips into the Monongahela National Forest; and a visit to Washington D.C. The selected delegates must not only demonstrate academic achievement in science, but also show potential for thoughtful scientific leadership.

The NYSC experience is offered at no cost to participants, so that selected delegates may attend regardless of their financial status. Educational and recreational programming, as well as meals, lodging, and round-trip air passage on scheduled airlines are provided free of charge. Delegates arrive in Charleston, West Virginia, on Friday, June 27, and depart on Sunday, July 20, 2014. The NYSC is held near Bartow in the eastern mountains of West Virginia, within the Monongahela National Forest. More information about the NYSC is available on the website at www.nysc.org.

Applications must be submitted online by Friday, March 1, 2014. High School Seniors may apply at http://apply.nysc.org For more information, contact: Cheryl Kleckner eMail
