Over 50 awards were handed out at the annual Fraser Valley Regional Science Fair held last week (April 4-7). Students from 18 schools in the Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Langley and Hope area came together to compete for prizes and a chance to represent Team BC at the Canada Wide Science Fair next month.

The Grand Prize winners, of an all-expenses paid trip to the Canada-Wide Science Fair were James Fang and Raul Pinol from St. John Brebeuf in Abbotsford (pictured above with The Honourable Judith Guichon, OBC Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia and her aides-de-camp).
