Special Awards judging
The Fraser Valley Regional Science Fair will be held at the Envision Athletic Centre at the University of the Fraser Valley in Abbotsford. Each year about 5,000 elementary and high school students from the Fraser Valley region prepare and exhibit science projects at their school. The top 250 projects qualify to compete in the Regional Science Fair. One to nine outstanding young scientists from Grade 7 to 12 will be selected to compete at the Canada-Wide Science Fair
Each year, special awards that total more than $15,000 are donated by science-oriented community businesses, professionals and service organizations. These awards are an outstanding way for the community to recognize and celebrate the achievements of the young scientists in our region.
As a sponsor of one of the special awards that will be presented at the Fraser Valley Regional Science Fair, we would like to invite you and interested colleagues to assist with the judging of your award this year.
Please let us know by March 15th of your interest and availability.

During the Fraser Valley Regional Science Fair, the meeting place for judges will be in the foyer of the Envision Athletic Centre. Although judging is a time commitment on your part, students consistently report that the best part of their science fair experiences is their conversations with knowledgeable scientists who treat their work with respect. Judging will let you encourage the next generation of scientists.
