Participant Responsibilities During the Fair

You can choose to do project set-up/check-in the evening before the fair. This is optional but will save time in the morning. Set up times are: 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm on April 6th and 7:30 am to 8:30 am April 7th. Projects MUST be set up by no later than 8:30 am. 

Exhibitors are required to remain with their projects during judging, and will also be responsible for the supervision and demonstration of their projects during public viewing, as the Western Manitoba Science Fair is not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged articles.

The display area will be closed between 12:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. for lunch. Participants must bring a bag lunch as there is no canteen available at the Healthy Living Centre. There will be entertainment during the lunch hour. Do not leave valuable personal items unattended at any time during the fair.

Exhibitors are advised that projects should not be removed before the time indicated on the Schedule of Events. The Western Manitoba Science Fair Committee will dispose of unclaimed projects after the designated project removal time.

All students should attend the awards ceremony. The grades 1-4 awards ceremony will start at 4:30 PM, and the grades 5-12 awards ceremony will start at 6:30 PM. Both award ceremonies will be in the main gym at the HLC, with seating in the bleachers. More information regarding parking will be available closer to the fair. 

All participants are required to show respect and courtesy to all other students, judges, security, and any other fair attendees.
