Teachers must register (through the Heritage Saskatchewan website) to participate in the Heritage Fair program by the first Monday in February of each year. In 2018, that deadline was February 5.
Approximately one month after teachers have registered, the Swift Current Regional Heritage Fair Committee will let registered teachers know how many students can represent their schools at the Swift Current Regional Heritage Fair.
Once teachers have completed their Classroom and/or School Heritage Fair, teachers register their students selected to represent their school at the Regional Fair by April 6, 2018, on the online registration system (through the Heritage Saskatchewan website).
