Iowa High School Seniors Sought for National Youth Science Camp® Honors

(DES MOINES) –  Gov.  Terry Branstad and Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds today announced that two Iowa high school seniors have the opportunity to receive full scholarships to attend the National Youth Science Camp (NYSC) this summer in West Virginia. The students will exchange ideas with scientists and other professionals from the academic and corporate worlds during the nearly month-long experience.

The camp 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 scholarship recipients. Contributions to the National Youth Science Foundation® allow delegates to participate in this educational experience. Educational and recreational programming, as well as meals, lodging, and round-trip air passage on scheduled airlines are provided.

Delegates arrive in Charleston, West Virginia, on Wednesday, June 17, 2015, and depart on Saturday, July 11, 2015. The NYSC is held near Bartow in the eastern mountains of West Virginia, within the Monongahela National Forest.

Application forms are available on the NYSC website at
