Anokh Singh Dhillon

Semiahmoo Secondary student takes aim at ‘Brain Bee’

South Surrey's Anokh Singh Dhillon is one of two contestants at the Canadian National Brain Bee.

Semiahmoo Secondary student Anokh Singh Dhillon is one of two B.C. contestants chosen for the Canadian Institutes of Health Research’s sixth annual Canadian National Brain Bee, this Saturday at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ont.

Like a spelling bee in format, the contest focuses on answering questions about neuroscience research and the brain – and the first place champion wins bragging rights as “the best brain in Canada,” plus $1,500 and a trip for two to represent Canada at the International Brain Bee competition in Vienna.

Dhillon and Keiler Totz, a student at St. Michael’s University School in Victoria, are the only B.C. representatives out of 13 finalists selected from across Canada for the contest, created to interest high school students in pursuing careers in neuroscience.
