FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Northern B.C. Regional Science Fair submissions have been received, and voting for the People’s Choice award ends Wednesday at noon.

A total of 97 students from School Districts 59, 60, and 81 worked on 89 projects in a virtual science fair this year.

Chairperson Jennie Copeland says a team of dedicated volunteers have worked countless hours to provide excellent learning opportunities for students.

“As a committee, we are very grateful to the wonderful sponsors who step up year after year to donate funds to keep this fair going, as well as many of their employees volunteer to take time out of the busy schedules to help with judging over the past week,” says Copeland.

“We hope that this experience has been a positive one for the budding young scientists in our region and look forward to seeing where they continue their pursuits in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics in their futures.”
