The Museum Association of Newfoundland and Labrador is proud to sponsor the Museum Resources Award as part of the Newfoundland and Labrador Heritage Fairs Program, sponsored by the Historic Sites Association of Newfoundland and Labrador. They have partnered with the Department of Education and School Boards in Newfoundland and Labrador to manage the annual Heritage Fairs program since 1997.
The Museum Resources Award criteria is based on the project demonstrating use of museum resources for research. One prize is awarded per region, with six regions in total. Each prize includes a one-year MANL membership, an award certificate and a cheque for $50.00.
The Heritage Fairs Program started in 1997 as part of a national initiative to bring history to life for students. Directly linked to school curricula, Heritage Fairs allow students to showcase their history and heritage projects, using a variety of media. Once students present their projects at school fairs, outstanding projects are advanced to a regional fair. Regional or provincial fairs are held in every Canadian province and territory each spring. Six regional fairs are held each year throughout the province.
Newfoundland and Labrador students in grades 4 to 12 may be eligible to take part in the Newfoundland and Labrader Heritage Fairs Program. For more information about the NL Heritage Fair Program, please contact:
