Special Awards judging
At the Fraser Valley Regional Science Fair, about 5,000 elementary and high school students from Langley to Boston Bar prepare and exhibit science projects at their school. The top 250 projects qualify to complete in the Regional Science Fair. Six to eight outstanding young scientists from Grade 7 to 12 will be selected to compete at the Canada-Wide Science Fair, in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
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. Sponsors of the special awards are invited to assist with the judging of their award.
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.
Judging is performed by small teams of judges with expertise in the award area. Students are interviewed in 10-minute time blocks, and projects are evaluated according to criteria for excellence specified by the award donor. Read more about the specialty awards judging process here.
Special Award judging will happen on Wednesday, March 24.
Grade 7 – 12: 1 – 5 p.m.
K – Grade 6: 2:45 – 5 p.m.
If you wish to judge the special awards, please let us know by March 15, 2010 of your interest and availability.
