Project Information

  • Projects may be developed considering any aspect of Canadian heritage, not just history.
  • Students may also select to research any part of their own family history or culture, or those of another Canadian group. The possibilities are unlimited.
  • Often, projects that they have already completed in class for other studies can be quickly and easily adapted into Heritage Fair projects.
  • Projects can be submitted by individuals, groups, or even by entire classes.
  • It is the project not the individual or group that is considered for special recognition – there will only be one prize allotted per category.
  • Projects may be done in either official language, English or French.

Projects may take any of the following forms:

3-Dimensional Projects and Displays

These projects could include models, posters, maps, collections and original artistic displays. Individual Projects should not be larger than 80 cm depth, 150 cm width, 100 cm height. Fair coordinators need to be advised of class projects that require extra space.


These projects could include music, drama or dance and should be no longer than 15 minutes in length.

Creative Writing

These projects could include short stories or poetry. They can be part of a larger display, illustrated or be a performed by the author.

Multi-Media Displays

These projects could include electronic projects such as Videos, powerpoint presentations or web pages saved on CD. **Please note that presenters need to provide their own audio-visual equipment and must indicate on the registration form that they require an electrical outlet.
