Provincial Heritage Fair

The provincial heritage fair is an annual exhibition for students in Grades 5 to 9 to present their heritage projects. Students learn about a Canadian heritage topic that interests them and then present their work through displays, creative writing or performance.

All participating students present their projects at their school. Top presenters are selected to attend the provincial heritage fair held annually in May. Provincial finalists are invited to participate in the national Young Citizens video contest. Students create a 3-5 minute video of their Heritage Fair project and post it online for voting. Two PEI students will be selected to attend Canada’s History for Youth Forum in Ottawa.
