Earlier this week, the Provincial Heritage Fair took place at Government House here in Regina.
Grades four to eight students from across Saskatchewan had their projects chosen to participate from regionals, including several projects from the Queen City.
The projects were originally ones developed in schools at their individual heritage fairs. The winners moved to regionals, where those winners were selected for the provincial fair.
The projects had various topics, including Alex Brown, a grade eight student from Delisle, who made a project on War Guests in Canada.
“I happened to be reading a book series on them and found it very interesting,” she said. “And sad too, how the children just left their homes to be safe.”
Other projects had more of an international angle to them, like one from Maya Asdaghai and Farah Haji, who did theirs on human rights.
“They influence our daily lives,” she said. “We both have families that came to Canada in search of rights and freedoms based on equity.”
In the end, the top prize was awarded Anya Shyian from White City, who did her project on the Dead Sea.
