  Encourage 12th grade students to apply for National Youth Science Camp®

Two South Dakota high school seniors could receive a full scholarship to exchange ideas with scientists and other professionals from the academic and corporate worlds at the National Youth Science Camp®. 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. Selected delegates must demonstrate academic achievement in science and show potential for thoughtful scientific leadership.

The NYSC experience is offered at no cost to participants. Contributions to the National Youth Science Foundation® allow delegates to participate. 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, W.Va., on June 17, and depart on July 11. The NYSC is held near Bartow in the eastern mountains of West Virginia, within the Monongahela National Forest.
