BP Outstanding CYSF Coordinator Awards

The BP Outstanding CYSF Coordinator Awards (Sponsored by BP Canada) recognize the efforts of Science Fair Coordinators/Teachers to make learning fun and to engage the interests of their students through science fair activities. Coordinators are nominated by students participating in the Calgary Youth Science Fair (CYSF) for their efforts to motivate the students and help bring science to life. Two awards are granted, one at the elementary and one at the secondary level, and include a trophy and cheque for the school to further engage students in science.



Take the Science Fair Challenge - Get Involved!

The 2014 Calgary Youth Science Fair will be a special one, as we are returning for our 3rd year at the Olympic Oval at the University of Calgary.

The mission of the Calgary Youth Science Fair Society is "to promote an appreciation for scientific principles and method in the youth of Calgary by means of an annual science competition". Every year approximately 800 students from schools in and around Calgary gather to take part in Canada's largest science fair.

The fair is open to students in grades 5 through 12. Students normally register through the science fair coordinator at their school. If a school does not sign up for the fair, then parents have the option of registering their child directly, as an independent. If you are a parent interested in entering your child as an independent please contact Fraser Head at help@cysf.org.

The science fair is organized by the Calgary Youth Science Fair Society to encourage and promote ongoing interest in science. The Board of Directors is comprised of volunteers representing the business, scientific, and education communities of Calgary.
