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 2023 the Heritage Fair is returning to an in-person event at the Prince of Wales Amouries Heritage Centre.
Many thanks to the sponsors of the 2022 virtual Edmonton Regional Heritage Fair: the Edmonton Heritage Council, Edmonton & District Historical Society, the Government of Alberta, and History Canada
