IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM OHFA PRESIDENT ROSE FINE-MEYER
DUE TO THE ON-GOING STRIKE AT YORK UNIVERSITY,
THE ONTARIO PROVINCIAL HERITAGE FAIR HAS BEEN CANCELLED FOR THIS YEAR!
We are thrilled to announce that we are planning to create an opportunity for students selected as delegates to the Provincial Fair to attend another special Provincial event.
We have decided to hold a one day event on Saturday June 9th at 3 sites across the province.
One in Ottawa - One in Toronto - One in Sudbury
We are inviting all students selected as Provincial Fair delegates to attend the event in the city closest to where they live, and hope to have as many participants as possible!
And, we have some funding to provide support for each of the three cities.
We have formed committees and are furiously looking into venues, food, awards etc. for the children.
We are hoping that all regions will participate in the oursharedstoriesc.ca program by continuing to submit films, and even to submit a film that features the winners of their regions.
(especially if some students cannot attend-they can create videos!)
Deadline for uploading the videos is June 3rd.
The stories will be screened at all sites on June 9th.
Thank you for your ongoing support and we look forward to sending everyone updated information as soon as we have gathered it.
Rose Fine-Meyer - OHFA President
