SaJHS Talent Show: Get ready for the Salem Junior High School Talent show! We are excited to have students audition and show off their skills. Starting March 21st until April 15th we will have sheets in the office to sign up for an audition slot! Your talent should not exceed 8 minutes (unless it's yodeling, then the sky's the limit). Callbacks will be later in the month of April and the talent show will have a rehearsal on the 12th of May. The actual talent show will be on the 13th of May. We cannot guarantee everyone a slot in the talent show. If you have a unique talent that cannot be on stage and would like to submit a video, please submit it to ethan [dot] dunn [at] nebo [dot] edu

The forum will be held virtually on Thursday, April 7 from 6:00-7:15pm. This forum is geared toward introducing career opportunities to Utah girls and women in two fields: law and nonprofit. It is specifically designed for young women in middle and high school, as well as college students. The forum will consist of two panels of professional women who have focused their careers in these areas in various ways. Judges, lawyers, and nonprofit executives will share their experiences and insights about choosing to work within their chosen fields. The registration link for the forum can be found here.

BYU Chip Camp: We are excited to announce that applications for BYU's annual Chip Camp are now open. Chip Camp is the first and only engineering day camp run in the summer on the BYU campus.  It is a 3-day event meant to promote STEM fields and get 7th and 8th-grade students excited about pursuing a future career in STEM.  

This year students will have the opportunity to receive a full-tuition scholarship for Chip Camp that will cover the cost of Chip Camp. We are encouraging female students and students from low-income families to apply for full-tuition scholarships. This is an amazing opportunity for your students to attend a summer camp at no cost.
