The 50th anniversary of the Canada-Wide Science Fair will welcome 509 finalists with 426 projects and 179 adult delegates (chaperones) from 99 affiliated regional organizations - numbers that easily make this year's event the largest ever.

Youth Science Canada's National Judging Committee began reviewing project reports today in preparation for the full day of judging on Tuesday May 17th when over 500 professional scientists, engineers, and educators will spend the day interacting with Canada's top young scientists, and selecting the recipients of nearly $1M in medals, prizes, awards, trips, and scholarships.
