New and returning awards!
Have you been wondering what awards have been arranged for the next Fair? We’ve been hard at work behind the scenes and are happy to announce a few of the awards confirmed for the 2019 Red River Heritage Fair.
The French Project Award is brought to you by the St. Boniface Museum and is for projects focusing on French Canadian culture and history, especially those projects done in French.
Sustainable Development Award is sponsored by KGS Group. The idea of sustainable development fits in especially well with the Grade 7 Social Studies curriculum (hint, hint).
The Juno Beach Award comes to you via the Juno Beach Centre Association and is aimed at Second World War projects.
The Selkirk Settler Award is an award from the Manitoba Living History Society targeting projects on early Manitoba history. If you don’t already know about this award sponsor, you should check them out. They do some interesting and fun things.
The MSSTA Marie Zorniak Memorial Award is an award from the Manitoba Science Teachers Association named in memory of Marie Zorniak. Like Marie tried to do, this award looks for special, marvelous projects and people that might not fit the regular categories.
The Manitoba Project Award is brought to you by the Manitoba Historical Society and is intended to honor projects about Manitoba. Check out the MHS website. There’s some interesting resources there.
