REGISTRATION NOW OPEN FOR THE SCIENCE FAIR FOUNDATION BC’S FOURTH ANNUAL YOUTH INNOVATION SHOWCASE

 

Vancouver, BC - The Science Fair Foundation BC is pleased to announce that registration for the fourth annual Youth Innovation Showcase is now open. 

The 2022 Youth Innovation Showcase is looking for youth from across BC and the Yukon who are working on the next STEM breakthrough. Students between the ages of 12 and 19 with innovations big and small are invited to register for this year’s virtual competition by submitting a 45-second pitch video. 

Finalists will have their pitch videos reviewed by industry experts in November for a chance to win $5,000. 

"Our goal with the Youth Innovation Showcase is to break down barriers and inspire youth by opening the doors for exploration of education and career opportunities," said Madeleine Guenette, Executive Director of The Science Fair Foundation BC. 

The Youth Innovation Showcase encourages youth to explore creative ways to solve everyday challenges, and to see how theoretical solutions can become real-world change. These young innovators come face-to-face with industry and academic leaders to pitch their great new ideas and inventions, get feedback from experts in the field, and find out where a career in STEM can take them. 

The deadline for submissions is September 30. Semi-finalists will be announced on October 12, 2022. Finalists will be announced on November 7, 2022 and the winner will be announced on November 30th, 2022, at the Youth Innovation Showcase Awards Show.
