In response to the increasing threat of the COVID-19 pandemic and the recent information from Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer, the Calgary Youth Science Fair (CYSF) Society has decided to cancel the 2020 CYSF. There are no plans to reschedule the 2020 CYSF at this time.

Alberta Health Services has implemented aggressive measures to slow the spread of COVID-19 in Alberta. This includes prohibiting student attendance at K-12 schools in the province indefinitely.

We are devastated that we are not able to host CYSF this year; however, the safety of the students, staff, families, and volunteers at Calgary Youth Science Fair (CYSF) is paramount.

The CYSF and its valued supporters would still love to see the fruits of students’ research. We want to acknowledge all the hard work that has been done by our participants on their projects and encourage them to continue building on their research and to enter those projects in next year’s fair.


With parental permission, take some photos of you with your project, post it on social media and tag #CYSF2020 and your school. We can’t wait to see all of the hard work you have done on your project.
