Science Fairs Provincial Awards

The British Columbia Provincial Awards Program is available to all participants of the British Columbia Regional Science Fairs which are currently affiliated with Youth Science Canada. Criteria for awards are broad to enable as many students as possible to participate.

Winners and nominees for Provincial Awards are not necessarily Canada-Wide Science Fair participants or Gold Medal winners at their Regional Science Fairs. Submissions may be one or two-person projects. Awards are shared except where noted.
The Science Fair Mentorship Program
The Science Fair Mentorship Program is an initiative administered by The Science Fair Foundation BC which helps students in grades 7-12 find the resources they need to investigate scientific questions of interest to them. Based on an initial project proposal, our team matches students with mentor(s) who are former Canada-Wide Science Fair participants or are knowledgeable in your field of interest.
Student Resources
Science Fair Projects come in all shapes and sizes, covering topics from ecology to computer science. Check out our step-by-step guide on how to plan your work and how to present it.
