TJHSST is a highly prestigious school, with strict regulations and an unblemished reputation to adhere to. It is completely unethical to simply take away students rights of abstaining from an unnecessary test or allowing other students to potentially cheat by allowing others to complete or assist them on their respective Student Information Sheets or Essays, a blatant contradiction to the TJHSST mission statement by completely bypassing the goal of "fostering a culture of innovation based on ethical behavior". This way, even the most deserving student is not guaranteed a spot in the final 480, as there is no way of assuring that the work submitted is original and therefore does not represent the student's true ability and thought process. So we urge all semifinalists and any other TJHSST students, teachers and alumni to support our endeavor.We want to change the way that TJHSST will hold the testing of the SIS and essay.Students should complete the SIS and essay at a testing site still in the PDF format,rather than at home.We cannot stop until we get the attention of the admissions board and at least compromise a way to disable the cheating, so keep sharing this with your friends, and signatures aren't limited to anyone. Anyone can sign, parent, teacher, brother, sister, friend, anyone. So keep hitting share!
