Each year, the top FVRSF projects advance to the national stage, the Canada-Wide Science Fair (CWSF). A spot on Team FVRSF is the Grand Prize Award at the FVRSF, and is perhaps the most coveted prize awarded each year. For this week long event, team members travel to another city in Canada to compete with peers across the country. Students benefit both intellectually and socially at the CWSF as they interact with peers, professional scientists and engineers. Plaques, medals, trophies, and cash awards may fade from memory, but the experience of competing with Team FVRSF will be remembered for many years to come.
Students who have participated at the CWSF level may also be selected to represent Canada at other international fairs such as the Taiwan International Science Fair.
