Windsor to host 53rd annual CWSF in 2014

Tue, 2013-05-14 22:12 -- Reni Barlow

The Windsor Regional Science, Technology, and Engineering Fair (WRSTEF) has partnered with Youth Science Canada to bring the annual Canada-Wide Science Fair to Windsor, Ontario from May 10 to 17, 2014. Co-chairs Jill Bundun, Eileen Topliffe and Michel Larocque are very excited. “This has been a dream in the planning for a number of years and we are honoured to be awarded this opportunity.”

The co-chairs added, “Many Canadians are not aware of what we offer in terms of our educational institutions, industry strengths, and of course, the great tourism and hospitality of Canada's most southerly community. And as a bonus, Windsor has the best in traditional and halal pizza in Canada!”

Approximately 1,000 participants will attend, including 500 of Canada’s top young scientists, 200 adult chaperones, and over 300 professionals who will judge the projects. This is a phenomenal opportunity to showcase the region of Windsor and Essex County to the finalists, delegates and VIPs from coast to coast to coast, who will experience the beauty, history, and culture of the region. The exhibit hall and accommodations will be at the University of Windsor, with the opening and awards banquets at Caesar's Windsor and the St. Clair Centre for the Arts.

The host committee is seeking sponsorship partners and support; science, engineering, and health sciences professionals and experts to judge; and enthusiastic volunteers to help. People will be amazed by the science being done by Canadian youth!
