4-H members in Grades 7 to 12 are invited to enter their innovative science fair projects for the third annual 4-H Canada Science Fair — the only non-school science fair in the country.
Entrants, who can register and get more detailed information at the 4-H Canada website until Jan. 16, have a chance to compete against other 4-H’ers in Truro, N.S. from Feb. 28-March 4 (travel and accommodations, less a small fee, are covered). After the 4-H fair, up to five finalists will move on to compete at the national 2018 Can- ada-Wide Science Fair in Ottawa in May.
In 2016-17, 30 4-H members competed in the 4-H Canada Science Fair and five moved on to the Canada-Wide Science Fair, where three won several bronze medals in their categories.
“It may not seem like much, but it is opportunities like the 4-H Canada Science Fair that change a young adult’s life and allow them to gain the skills required to become successful,” said one participant.
The science fair, sponsored by Bayer, is part of 4-H Canada’s commitment to foster science and technology skills and knowledge in youth.
