For the third year the AFHS is pleased to be asked to participate in the annual Heritage Fair.
The Calgary and District Heritage Fair provides a forum for young people in Grades 4 to 9 to learn about their Canadian heritage. Students choose a subject, do research and present a display or program at the Fair. Over 300 students from Calgary and district schools participated in last year’s Fair.
Originated and supported in part by the Historica Foundation, heritage fairs take place in cities and communities all across Canada on the same day. Museums Alberta and the ATA Social Studies Council have organized the program for ten years. This year the Calgary and District Fair will once again be held at City Hall on Saturday, May 6th, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m..
Members are being asked again to support this rewarding community endeavor, in two ways-
- Act as a judge of the displays presented by the students
- only a three-hour commitment.
- Provide an award/prize (a book, a CD or any
appropriate item related to history or family history) for
a student who prepares an exemplary piece of work.
