The direction from the Provincial Health Officer to cancel events with 250 or more attendees, compounded by the concerns of our volunteer base and the withdrawal of services which support the regional science fair, necessitates that we cancel the 2020 Cariboo-Mainline Regional Fair. Other regional fairs around the province have begun taking similar actions.
We hope you will encourage those students who have been developing projects to hold their work for next year, expanding on this year's work to create an even stronger entry for the 2021 fair!
Please work with your districts to share the news with your schools and students. For SD73, the Board Office is aware of the decision and Krista and I are working with them to disseminate that information to our district leaders.
A most sincere thanks for your hard work, volunteerism and time in supporting this event - your efforts are appreciated.
Thank you for your understanding during these challenging times,
Rob and Krista
