The Grand Awards are the trips to the Canada Wide Science Fair.

The Thames Valley Science & Engineering Fair is allowed to send a maximum of ten students plus two delegates to the Canada Wide Science Fair each year.

The number we send is limited by the sponsorships we are able to attract. It costs about $2000 to send each student to the CWSF.

Our long term goal is to increase our sponsorship so that we can send all ten students to the CWSF every year.

In order to be selected, students must be enrolled in grades 7 – 12. Only projects done by one or two students are eligible for the CWSF.

Selection of the students for CWSF will comply with the Youth Science Canada CWSF Eligibility Policy Their projects must also comply with Youth Science Canada Ethics Policies.

Students will be selected on the basis of the scientific merit of their project by the TVSEF Grand Awards Committee, which will be chaired by the Chief Judge. The decision of this committee is final.

The TVSEF will pay the travel and registration costs for each student selected to attend the CWSF.

Students may not gain entrance to the CWSF by providing the costs needed for the trip.
