WANTED – Eight Canadian students, grades 9-12/Cégep, to join Team Canada-ISEF 2022

OTTAWA, November 25, 2021 – Youth Science Canada, Canada’s national organization engaging youth through STEM projects, encourages all Canadian students, grades nine through 12 (including Cégep in Quebec), to apply for one of eight spots on Team Canada-ISEF 2022. The deadline to apply is Wednesday, December 15.

“The application process is in itself a learning and rewarding experience,” says Prof. Patrick Whippey, chair of Team Canada’s selection panel. “Canadian students continue to turn heads on the international scene and, more importantly, are playing a tremendous role in STEM research and exploration here at home.”

In 2021, eight members of Team Canada-ISEF won four awards, including a first award of $5,000 USD at Regeneron ISEF, the world’s largest pre-college celebration of science that brings together some 1,800 students from more than 80 nations to compete for more than $4 million in awards, scholarships, tuition grants, internships, scientific field trips and other prizes.

Students from grade nine to 12 and Cégep who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents can submit a project for consideration. Students can submit a continuation of their Canada-Wide Science Fair project only if they began working on it after January 1, 2021.

A short-list of candidates will be selected by January 15 by Youth Science Canada’s selection committee. The top 30 students selected for round two will submit a five page report and a presentation on their project by March 6. A panel of judges will select the eight members of Team Canada-ISEF 2022 to represent Canada on March 20. The 2022 Regeneron ISEF will be held May 8 to 13, 2022, and hosted by the city of Atlanta. Team Canada-ISEF will participate virtually.
