Guidelines for Improving Your Work

Plan to present your work orally (not as a poster), with illustrations using PowerPoint or similar presentation software.  Projection equipment and a Windows computer with Powerpoint will be available for your use.  Bring your presentation on a USB jump drive or a CD, or you may use your own laptop.  Be sure to have a backup copy of your presentation to guard against last-minute computer glitches!  The time limit for this presentation is 12 minutes, the same as the national competition.

The WV-JSHS will follow the National JSHS guidelines for abstracts and talks; please read and follow these guidelines.  You may also use the helpful hints from other regional JSHS programs, also available on the National JSHS site.

The first and second place presenters at the WV Symposium must write formal research papers in order to compete at the National JSHS.  Guidelines for papers are also on the National JSHS website.  Faculty involved with the WV-JSHS will also be happy to work with you to improve your papers before they are submitted to the National JSHS.
