The International Awards

We are fortunate to have visitors from other countries come to the Canada Wide Science Fair to share with us their culture and their scientific excellence. They are eligible for a Gold, Silver or Bronze Medal, and are judged separately from the other awards.
We recently have hosted International projects from Mexico and Taiwan.
A group of students from the Australian National Youth Science Forum brings a display.
