Region 7 - Allegheny and Westmoreland Counties

Welcome to the Region 7 section of the PJAS Website! 


Regional Competition Links

  • NEW! 2023 Region 7 Competition Schedule
  • PJAS Registration Website
  • School Registration Fee Invoice Generator
  • PJAS Region 7 Perseverance Award Application
    To be completed by Sponsors for eligible 12th Grade participants
  • PJAS Region 7 Technician Registration
    Note: Each school should bring at least one (1) technician.  Schools with more than 10 participants should bring one (1) technician for every 10 participants, rounding up.  For example, a school with 23 participants should bring 3 technicians.  Students that started a PJAS project but did not complete it for whatever reason typically make excellent technicians.  Also, we will accept one (1) 6th grade technician per school. That technician will be assigned to the same unit that the sponsor will be judging.
    NEW!! To encourage more technicians, we will have a drawing for four $25 gift cards.  There will be two drawings in the morning session - one for technicians; one for sponsors...likewise in the afternoon session. Technicians who volunteer for both sessions will be entered into both technician drawings.  Sponsors will receive one entry in the applicable session for each technician that they bring.  Thank you for helping with our technician shortage.  Best of luck in the drawings!
