Students 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. Any students that are found to be repeatedly straying from their projects and needing multiple reminders to return to their projects, will not be permitted to attend future WMSFs.
The display area will be closed between 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. for lunch. Participants should bring a bag lunch, as there is no canteen available at the HLC. There will be entertainment during the lunch hour. Do not leave valuable personal items unattended at any time during the fair. Western Manitoba Science Fair is not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged articles.
Students are advised that projects should not be removed before the time indicated on the Schedule of Events (will be circulated before fair day).. 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 ceremonies will be in the main gym at the HLC, with seating on the bleachers.
All participants are required to show respect and courtesy to all other students, judges, security, and any other fair attendees. Disrespectful or bad behavior will not be tolerated.
