Congratulations to Annabelle Czihaly, UFV’s 2020 LIYSF Representative

The Faculty of Science is pleased to announce that UFV Physics student, Annabelle Czihaly, was selected to represent UFV this summer at the London International Youth Science Forum. Unfortunately due to Covid-19 the 62nd LIYSF has been postponed to 2021.

The shortlisted candidates, Annabelle Czihaly, Chandy Dancey, Connor Frey and Heather Kelly, were to present in person back in March. Since this was not possible, our candidates tuned up their video skills and submitted a virtual presentation to our selection panel and interviews were then held. It was a difficult decision for our panel as all candidates were stellar students.

Annabelle will travel abroad next summer with the chosen representative for next year. They will join 500 other leading scientists from around the world where they’ll immerse themselves in the 2-week summer programme in the UK. The date for next year’s event is July 28 – August 11, 2021.

We have no doubt that Annabelle will represent UFV with pride!
