The Ambassador Award students were chosen from across the province at the Historic Sites Association of Newfoundland and Labrador's regional Heritage Fairs. A part of the Honour 100 program, the Ambassador Awards recognize exceptional Heritage Fair projects on WW1 topics.
19 Heritage Fair students journeyed on a European tour retracing the steps of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment in the First World War, coinciding with the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Beaumont-Hamel. The participating students accompanied educators, government officials, Legion members and student Legion contest winners on an educational tour through England, France and Belgium. The delegation visited the five bronze caribou monuments to the Royal Newfoundland Regiment, visited various sites and cemeteries recognizing the sacrifice of WW1 soldiers, and also participated in numerous memorial services, including the official Beaumont Hamel 100th Anniversary Ceremony.
