What is the Edmonton Regional Heritage Fair?
The Edmonton Regional Heritage Fair (ERHF) is like a Science Fair but for Social Studies.
It is an opportunity for students from grades 4 through 9 to research, write, and present projects on a topic in Canada’s history, geography, culture, or heritage. These projects are initially shown in their schools and the best are chosen to present at the Edmonton Regional Heritage Fair.
On the day of the fair, as a demonstration of learning, students exhibit and explain their projects to judges from the community. The judges score the projects and those that receive a score above 85 are awarded special recognition of this achievement on their certificates of participation.
For 2022, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the ERHF board has decided to hold a virtual Heritage Fair.
