Heritage Fairs: Keeping Our Stories Alive

Six regional Heritage Fairs will be taking place across the province in spring of 2017. These fairs will feature exceptional student projects that have advanced from the school level. Students at the Regional Heritage Fairs will be considered for multiple awards, and programs such as Young Citizens and the Ambassador Award.

Please consider attending the fair in your region and experience our history and heritage through the eyes of our young students. You are also sure to gain new appreciation for Newfoundland and Labrador's unique history and heritage.

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 121,000 student projects, 17,000 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 Keeping Our Stories Alive: Celebrating 20 Years of Heritage Fairs in NL.
