OTTAWA -   An organization once known as primarily an agrarian entity continues to expand its horizons.

4-H Canada and its Science and Technology Pillar Partner, Bayer, have launched the third annual 4-H Canada Science Fair.  It's the only non-school science fair in the country, and is part of 4-H Canada’s commitment to foster STEM skills -- or science, technology, engineering and math.

With Bayer’s support, 4-H is playing an increasingly active role in engaging young Canadian minds in STEM," said Shannon Benner, CEO of 4-H Canada. "By creating a culture of curiosity, youth are more likely to see themselves as catalysts of change and make connections between the world, the positive contributions they can make and science."

In 2016-2017, thirty 4-H members competed in the 4-H Canada Science Fair and five moved on to the Canada-Wide Science Fair, where three won several bronze medals in their categories.

Registration for the 4-H Canada Science Fair closes January 16, 2018. To learn more about it, visit 4-H Canada.
