   Welcome to the 2020 Northwestern Ontario Regional Science Fair! 

UPDATE: March 18, 2020

For 2020, the Northwestern Ontario Regional Science Fair will be hosting its 57th annual science fair in the format of a non-judged Digital Showcase on Tuesday April 21st, 2020. Participants will be able to share their science fair projects with their peers, moderators, and interested sponsors via online platforms.

There will be no registration fee for this digital fair. The new deadline for registration and forms is Tuesday, April 14th, 2020

There will be no monetary prizes or CWSF contestants this year. Arrangements will be made for participants to present their peers with a Student Choice Award in lieu of formal judging. Student Choice Awards will be featured on our website with a picture of the project and an abstract.

As this is a non-judged fair, eligible participants may submit their projects to the Northwestern Ontario Regional Science Fair in 2021.

 We look forward to seeing you at our Digital Showcase! 


With the recent news surrounding the spread of the COVID-19 virus, many schools and students have questions and concerns regarding the upcoming Northwestern Ontario Regional Science Fair. The NWORSF committee is currently evaluating the options for the fair based on guidance from Health Canada, the Public Health Agency of Canada, the Province of Ontario and the Thunder Bay District Health Unit.

The health and safety of our participants, visitors, community partners and volunteers is always our highest priority. As of this update, there are no known cases of COVID-19 within any of the schools participating in the NWORSF or among students and staff at Lakehead University.

We recognize the hard work, passion and enthusiasm of our science fair participants, and we are grateful for your patience during this rapidly changing situation. Our committee is working to review the status of this event and exploring changes to the format of our fair to allow the hard work of the students to be highlighted. A final decision on the status of the NWORSF will be made no later than Monday, March 30, 2020.
