Regional Science Fair Awards

BC Nature has recently increased their Science Fair awards and changed the award criteria to strongly encourage an outdoor nature monitoring or conservation project.

The “BC Nature Awards” (Federation of BC Naturalists) are to be awarded at each British Columbia Regional Science Fair to the best natural history project done by a student(s) in Grades 6 to 8 (junior), $75 and by a student(s) in Grades 9 to 12 (senior) $75. This includes studies of any aspect of natural history, conservation of natural habitats and/or natural species. An outdoor, nature monitoring or conservation project is strongly encouraged.

What is an outdoor, nature monitoring or conservation project? You can monitor plants, turtles, frogs, bees, birds, bats and species at risk or participate in an aspect of Streamkeeping, Shorekeeping or wetlands monitoring or participate and monitor an invasive plant removal and/or native planting project.

Teachers may not have time to support individual students and their outdoor project but parents may be able to help and you may wish to request assistance from your local Naturalists Club, science faculty of your local college or local environmental agency or business.

You can make further inquiries at your local Naturalists’ Club; or BC Nature Education Chair Marg Cuthbert, email: blueheron@birdsonthebay.ca. The Science Fair Foundation manages an Alumni Mentorship Program for those who request mentors, contact Madeleine Guenette, Director of Operations, Science Fair Foundation BC, tel: 604.602.5219, email:
