CB Cares secured Merk’s External Quality Assurance leadership to serve as the community judges for the evening program.
The select groups of judges were from all over the world, as far away as Argentina and India, and had the difficult task of identifying and awarding six students the CB Cares Educational Foundation Research Award for Excellence.
The night was full of opportunity for the students to showcase their technical and soft skills as they presented their projects and answered questions for over an hour. CB Cares worked closely with CB West’s science teacher and BCSRC Co- Director Mark Hayden to identify 20 students as Ambassadors for the competition. For decades, students in grades 6-12 have competed in this local science competition.
This year, 18 schools were represented with over 400 students in attendance.
CB Cares Executive Director Kimberly Cambra said, “We are excited for this partnership as youth empowerment has always been a primary goal that can be seen in the programs and initiatives we have offered over the last 20 years.”
