Participation Options

Saskatchewan students from grade 4 to 8 are eligible to participate. Students are asked to create a visual presentation (backboard, video, et cetera), written report including bibliography and be prepared to verbally present their project findings.

Classroom Heritage Fair

In some schools, only one classroom participates in the program. We encourage any teacher interested in participating to take part! Students in grades 3 or lower, as well as in grades 9 or higher, may participate at the school fair.

We encourage these teachers to organize a Classroom Heritage Fair that allows community volunteers to judge student projects and gives students the opportunity to share their learning with their parents and their community. Or a teacher may choose to assess the student’s projects themselves. Every teacher is given the opportunity to decide for themselves what works best in their classroom.

School Heritage Fair

In some schools, many teachers in several grades and classrooms participate in the program. We encourage teachers to organize a School Heritage Fair. Invite community volunteers to judge student projects and give students the opportunity to share their learning with their parents and their community. Or teachers may choose to assess the student projects in a team approach. Every teacher is given the opportunity to decide for themselves what will work best in their school. We recognize that every school is unique and may approach the planning of a School Heritage Fair in their own way.

Extracurricular Club

In some schools, one teacher would like to give as many students from as many grades as possible the opportunity to participate in the Heritage Fair program. You can participate in the Heritage Fair program as part of an extracurricular club. We encourage any teacher interested in giving students this opportunity to take part!
