The NSHSS Passion Project Exhibition took place on November 22 & 23, during NSHSS Scholar's Day in Atlanta, GA. Located at the Omni Atlanta Hotel at CNN Center, the Exhibition was a series of poster board exhibits that showcased the passion projects of NSHSS members. Members were called on to apply for the exhibition with a project proposal and were then selected to compete. Each exhibit was focused on one of two themes:
Exhibitors presented their projects to the three-judge panel in their category. The projects were also open for viewing to all attendees - an audience of approximately 1,200 NSHSS members, families, educators, and corporate leaders. After the presentations, the judge panels deliberated to unanimously determine the three winners in each category.
The top three exhibitors from each category were presented with a scholarship check during the Member Recognition Ceremony on Saturday, November 23. The scholarships are to be used for furthering their passion projects.
