trophies2014Eighth Annual Competition
May 30th, McMaster University

On May 30 2015, the top high school students from across Canada will come to McMaster University to compete for the CIHR Canadian National Brain Bee championship. These are the top students who have already won their regional competitions. They will meet to engage in challenging events, testing their knowledge of neuroscience and their skills at patient diagnosis and neuroanatomy.

Competitors will come from several cities across Canada, from coast to coast.  We may have as many as 17 competitors in 2015.  

All of the competitors will take home an experience of a lifetime.  Our 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners will also take home trophies and cash prizes ($1500 for first place; $1000 second place; $500 third place). The very top student also takes home a travelling trophy to display at their school for one year, and is given the opportunity to work as a summer intern in a neuroscience laboratory.

The challenge is not over for the CIHR Canadian National Brain Bee champion.  The winner will represent Canada at the International Brain Bee (IBB).  The 2015 IBB willl be held in Australia! 

Good luck to everyone in their local competitions!  If you are interested in competing in your local area, look for contact information in the left panel, organized by city name.
