YRSTF regrets to announce that due to the COVID-19 situation, YRSTF 2020 on April 4th, 2020 at York University has been cancelled.
As a result of the preventative measures enacted by our provincial government due to the spread of COVID-19, we are unable to hold the 2020 York Region Science and Technology Fair as planned. We have also been informed that Youth Science Canada has also cancelled the Canada Wide Science Fair being held May 9-14th, in Edmonton, Alberta.
YRSTF is committed to the health and safety of all of our participants, judges, and volunteers and while this is a difficult decision to make, it is the right decision to keep everyone safe. We would like to acknowledge the time and effort students have put into their projects, as well as the many hours of support provided by both teachers and parents. York Region is very lucky to have such an enthusiastic group of students and volunteers who are passionate about their research and the science fair.
At this time, we ask you all to look forward to YRSTF 2021! It's never too early to start thinking about your project for next year.
