Manitoba Schools Science Symposium Awards

These annual awards are presented at the Manitoba Schools Science Symposium to students whose work relates to women’s health issues. Since 1996 the WHRFC has supported the Best Project in Women’s Health category. This ongoing support raises awareness of women’s health concerns among young scientists, and WHRFC board members, including University of Manitoba academic researchers, have judged student projects at this event.

Award Details & Eligibility

The MSSS award consists of a cheque for $50, a Certificate of Achievement and a congratulatory letter from the WHRFC. All Manitoba students are eligible for the awards, which are presented in the following four grade levels: 4-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12.
