The Annual Heritage Fair at Barriere Secondary School held on Apr. 26, was up in number of entries from past years.  The fair gives students an opportunity to tell their stories and information about their personal or family history, some meaningful aspect of their community, or an important Canadian event or hero that is important to them. Students can choose any combination of media to present their work, including three-dimensional projects, creative writing, performance and/or audio-visual.  This year’s event featured all of the above including live chickens, and a pigeon.  Winners of the competition will be announced in next week’s issue, and the top finishers will compete at the Kamloops Thompson Regional Heritage Fair on May 11.
