FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY

The WBRSF and our other events would not be possible without the generous contributions of our sponsors. The majority of our funding is used to finance fair day logistical costs (such as facility and equipment rentals and catering), awards and prizes, public speakers, publicity, and travel to the Canada-Wide Science Fair. Details of our latest fiscal budget are presented below.
