IMPORTANT UPDATE - 2020 Sudbury Regional Science Fair Cancelled
We regret to inform you that the Sudbury Regional Science Fair must now be cancelled for 2020 due to the evolving mandates regarding social distancing protocols and school closures related to the COVID-19 crisis.
To our student participants, we congratulate you for the work you have done on your Science Fair projects, we thank you for those who had registered and look forward to seeing you at our fair next year. If there is anything that the COVID-19 crisis makes clear, it is the importance of science and scientists in our society today. We encourage you to keep learning, keep inquiring and keep challenging the status quo!
To our judges, thank you for those who had volunteered once again this year to be judges for our fair. We hope that you will raise your hand once again next year to see the amazing work our students will have done.
To our valued sponsors, we thank you for your ongoing support. In light of the cancellation, our Sudbury Regional Science Fair Committee will be in touch with you in the coming weeks as to how any sponsorship and/or awards donations will be addressed for 2020.

Projects Involving Humans and/or Animals. The Canada Wide Science Fair has very clear policies on the use of humans and animals in science fair projects. BEFORE any student embarks on a project involving humans and/or animals, they must visit the Youth Science Canada website and read the policies under the ethics section that pertain to their proposed project. No project will be eligible to advance to the Canada Wide Science Fair unless all of the requirements of these policies are met. (www.youthscience.ca/node/835). If you have questions concerning the ethics policies, please do not hesitate to contact Chris Polischuk at email@example.com
