History through the eyes of our youth will be on display next week in the 11th annual Richmond Delta Regional Heritage Fair.
The fair is a bilingual educational initiative to encourage students to explore Canadian history and heritage in a dynamic, hands-on learning environment and then present the results at a public exhibition.
Students from four Delta elementary schools - Devon Gardens, McCloskey, Gibson and Neilson Grove - have been showcasing their projects to their school bodies in order to select Delta entries at this year's regional fair.
The fair actively involves students, schools, heritage organizations, businesses and community groups in a contemporary celebration of discovered traditions and events. Through the medium of their choice, students display their stories about local, provincial or national heroes, legends, milestones and achievements, and present them to the judges and the public.
Delta judges include Guillermo Bustos, Val Windsor, Gabrielle Martin and Mike Carleton.
The fair will take place on Friday, May 3 and Saturday, May 4 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Richmond Cultural Centre, 7700 Minoru Gate.
There will be over 80 student project displays as well as fun activities for the whole family. Admission is free.
