The annual NL school Heritage Fairs are a project of the Historic Sites Association of Newfoundland and Labrador (HSA). Since bringing the program to the province in 1997, the HSA initiative has involved over 116,500 student projects, 16,000 volunteers and thousands of prizes. Directly linked to school curricula, Heritage Fairs engage students directly in their own culture and heritage, and allow students to showcase their history projects using a variety of mediums. Their topic is presented at school fairs where outstanding projects are selected to attend a regional fair. This year’s Heritage Fair theme is Service and Sacrifice: Shaping our Culture.
