NWORSF Past International Science Fair Competitors:
Over the past decade, several of our NWORSF Alumni have achieved international recognition following their participation in the Northwestern Ontario Regional Science Fair - having taken their award-winning local projects beyond the local stage to international competition. This recognition is a reflection of the drive and dedication of our local students, and is also reflective of our consistently good placement at the Canada Wide Science Fair, and is indicative of the top-quality youth science taking place in our region.
In 2011, Sandra Dusolt won the honour of attending the International Movement for Leisure Activities in Science and Technology (MILSET) non-competitive science fair in Slovakia, where she had the opportunity to display her project and network with science-minded youth from around the world. The same year, Moriah Harvey was chosen by CWSF to represent Canada at the Australian National Youth Science Forum - the Australian national equivalent of the MILSET fair.
In 2015, Emily Cross became the first student from Northwestern Ontario to be selected to represent Canada at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) in Pittsburgh as a member of Youth Science Canada's "Team Canada ISEF 2015". 2015 was a record year for Canadians at ISEF, with students winning the Best In Fair Gordon E. Moore Award (Raymond Wang, Vancouver), and the 2nd Place Intel Young Scientist award (Nicole Ticea, Vancouver). Emily placed very well, earning the American Geoscience Institute First Place Special Award, and the ISEF 4th Place Grand Award for Earth and Environmental Science. Emily was selected as a member of Team Canada ISEF again in 2016, winning a second 4th Place Grand Award in Earth and Environmental Science in Phoenix, and returned for a 3rd time as an ISEF veteran in 2018, once again winning the American Geoscience Institute First Place Special Award in Pittsburgh as the world's best pre-university geoscientist.
In 2016, Emily Cross was also nominated to membership in Sigma Xi, the Scientific Research Honour Society for her scientific achievements. She was subsequently invited to attend the Sigma Xi Student Research Conference in Atlanta, Georgia, where she won the society's High School Geoscience Medal. As a student representative of Sigma Xi, Emily has led keynote presentations at the United States Science and Engineering Fair's X-Stem event in Washington DC (2017), and the Sigma Xi Student Research Conference in Raleigh, North Carolina (2017).
Beyond these research competitions, many of our NWORSF Alumni have received prestigious academic honours and scholarships, including 3 Schulich Leaders (2012, 2018, 2019)
