UFV hosted the Fraser Valley Regional Science Fair for K-12 students

2017 Fraser Valley Regional Science Fair Results

Over 50 awards were handed out at the annual Fraser Valley Regional Science Fair held April 4 to 7. Students from 18 schools in the Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Langley, and Mission area came together to compete for prizes and a chance to represent Team BC at the Canada Wide Science Fair next month. The students also had the pleasure of meeting the Honourable Judith Guichon, Lieutenant Governor of BC, who took time out of her busy schedule to visit and chat with many participants.

“UFV is very proud to host the Fraser Valley Regional Science Fair,” said Lucy Lee, Dean of the Faculty of Science at UFV. “This event is an important showcase of the knowledge, scientific spirit, and energy that thrives in the hearts and minds of Fraser Valley students. UFV congratulates all participants and award winners and wishes grand prize winners the best of luck in Regina next month.”

The Grand Prize winners of an all-expenses paid trip to the Canada-Wide Science Fair were Mac Smith (Clayburn Middle School, Abbotsford), Anna-Lisa Nguyen (Walnut Grove Secondary, Langley), and Jennifer Tran (R.E. Mountain Secondary, Langley). They will be joining over 500 of Canada’s top young scientists at the University of Regina May 14-20, 2017 and be competing for nearly $1 million in awards, prizes, and scholarships.
