Delegates to the National Youth Science Camp represent the highest levels of academic achievement in science and mathematics. Each year, the governor of West Virginia invites the governor of every other state to initiate a process to select two delegates to attend the NYSC as his/her state's delegation. In New Hampshire each high school may submit one candidate.
The National Youth Science Camp (NYSC) is an innovative and highly successful summer science honors program for two high-achieving high school students from each state in the nation and others around the world. The 2013 NYSC will be held at Camp Pocahontas in the Monongahela National Forest near the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in the eastern mountains of West Virginia.
The NYSC is an all-expenses-paid program held from June 27 through July 20, 2014. Applicants must commit to attend the entire camp. The National Youth Science Foundation will arrange round trip transportation from an airport near the delegate's home to Charleston, West Virginia. Incidental expenses are not covered.
