Book Awards

We offer two annual book awards to honour outstanding contributions to science writing for:

  1. Children aged 8-12 years.
  2. General public audience.
Competitors must be Canadian citizens or residents, but need not be SWCC members.

Entries, in either French or English, must have been published in Canada during the current calendar year. 

Annual Conference

Every year, the SWCC holds its Annual General Meeting & Conference in a chosen city within Canada. 

The conference location is chosen based on a number of factors:

  • volunteer base
  • partnerships
  • member locations
  • city hosts
This year's conference, due to the Pandemic, will be offered online.  For more information about the conference, visit our conference page.
