        PROVINCIAL HERITAGE FAIR      

The purpose of the annual Ontario Provincial Heritage Fair is to bring together 100 students from grades 4 to grade 10 (representing the Regional Fairs held in Ontario each year) for a non-competitive, interactive  history camp that includes a one day public showcase to  promote awareness of Ontario and Canadian history and heritage by the sharing of the excellent research projects students have brought with them.

Chosen students complete a research project using primary and secondary sources for sharing with their classmates and peers at their school and then at a Regional Fair.  Each Regional Fair chooses students and projects to attend the Provincial Fair.  A base number of places is allotted to each Regional Fair and extra places are allotted specifically for the inclusion of First Nation, French First Language and non-traditional students.

Regional Fair committees are cognisant of the inclusive nature of the Fairs program and their participant choices reflect the multi-cultural makeup of their communities. The lack of economic barriers that user fees would impose, allows sites to choose their representatives regardless of the families' economic situations.

The Provincial Fair is not a competition. Instead, it is a celebration of Ontario and Canadian Heritage. At the showcase,  students share the many fascinating stories of their families, communities, province and country with their peers, special guests and the public.
