In the 1990s, the U.S.S.R. dissolved, ending the Cold War. The North American Free Trade Agreement went into effect, fractured race relations led to devastating riots in Los Angeles, and a budget crisis caused the U.S. federal government to shut down for 27 days. In 1992, JSA partnered with the U.S. Department of the Interior to provide summer school scholarships to students from the U.S. Insular Territories and Freely Associated States. The JSA Northeast State formed in 1995, followed by JSA's Midwest State the following year. In 1999, the Ohio River Valley successfully petitioned to become a JSA state of its own, separating from the Midwest.
This fundraising team consists of students who graduated from JSA in the 1990s and continue to believe in the power of the Junior State of America. We’re celebrating JSA’s 80th anniversary by asking our friends, families, and fellow JSA’ers to invest in an organization that continues to make a huge impact on the lives of students across the U.S.
Please contribute to our shared goal by finding a 1990s compatriot (from the member list on your right) to contribute to, by clicking "DONATE NOW" above and contributing to our shared decade goal, or even by clicking "JOIN TEAM" on our team photo to start your own fundraising page and share your love of JSA with others.
We want to ensure that every student who wants to participate in JSA can, regardless of family income. Your contribution makes that happen.
$100 helps one future leader attend a convention; $300 helps them attend for an entire year. $5,000 ensures one more student can attend our life-changing summer school.
