Local schoolchildren show off their projects

March 21, 2017 by  

The Delta/Surrey Regional Heritage Fair is taking place over two days next month.

The fair allows elementary and secondary school students to showcase their history projects. The projects began in each school that had a fair to choose the top ones. The regional fair is the second step for the best of the projects, and the winners of this round will go on to compete in the provincial fair that will take place in July. The top exhibits chosen there will receive a trip to a heritage camp.

All of the students will be invited to join the BC Heritage Fairs Alumni. They can also choose to participate in the Young Citizens program in which they make a video on the subject of their project, and the best of those will receive a trip to Ottawa.

This event is open to the public and a day of activities is planned around the exhibits. It will end up with the closing awards ceremony.

It is likely that in order to spread the word to the Delta community about this event, organizers will invest in items such as professionally printed flyers.

The fair will be held at the Delta Museum from April 28 to 29. Admission is free of charge. To learn more about this event, or about the heritage fairs, contact Stephanie Haddaway at 604-946-2850.
