PHOTOS: Lacombe Jr. High host third annual Heritage Fair

Projects included presentations, displays, excellent interviews, and showed strong research skills

Heritage Fairs is a bilingual educational initiative that encourages students to explore Canadian heritage in a dynamic, hands-on learning environment.

On May 23, 2019 Ecole Lacombe Junior High held it’s 3rd annual Heritage Fair and this year Terrace Ridge participated alongside the Grade 7’s in Lacombe. There were over 110 projects and 140 students participating with some amazing projects that ranged from the last person to be hanged in Alberta, basketball, and Juno Beach.

This year we added a participant vote. The students, parents, and community members in attendance were provided with a ballot and asked to chose their favourites. The voting categories were: Best Overall, Best Display, and Most Original.

The winners were:

  • Best Display – Tragically Hip Cleo Heath & Leah Pallot From Terrace Ridge
  • Most original – Branches of my Family Tree – Katie Radke
  • Best Overall – Landon MacRae

There were 20 judges who officiated the event. The judges ranged from teachers, Wolf Creek Public School District Office Personnel, community members, as well as Lacombe City council members Thalia Hibbs, Cora Hoekstra, and Jonathan Jacobson. The top student projects had scored from 95 to 100 per cent in all areas from the judges.

All the projects had a wonderful presentation, displays, excellent interviews, and showed strong research skills.

Judges Winners

  • Most Original – Roberta Bondar – Jasmine Jean Baptiste and Ella Voth
  • Best Display – Alberta Oilfield – Landon MacRae
  • Best Overall Project – Laura Secord – Trinity Beil
