Museum hosted the various Heritage displays

The Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre (BCM&CC) offers its congratulations to the winners and participants in the recent Local Heritage Fair held at the Museum March 5, 2014.  Nine participants will be taking part in the Regional Fair at Grey Roots Museum & Archives on April 24.

The Local Heritage Fair is a partnership between the BCM&CC and G.C. Huston Public School in Southampton.  Students in grades four through eight were asked to create a project concerning Canadian History.  The project included both a poster and oral presentation lasting fifteen to twenty minutes in length. 

Students were marked on a number of criteria, including originality and relevance.  In all, 65 projects were judged by volunteers.  Topics ranged from local icons and places to those considered more national. 

Cole Sedore

On the evening of March 5, more than 80 family members supported the students’ efforts by examining the projects on display.  They were also able to see the winners chosen by the judges. 

Emma Hingston

Four classes of students were judged.  In each class, first, second and third place were recognized, with the judges choosing the regional contenders.  Those include:  Cole Sedore – CN Tower, Emma Hingston – Shipwrecks of Tobermory, Alex George - Aboriginal Elders, Tori Sutter-Lammie & Kelsey Shular - Bruce Coast Lighthouses, Rachel Shave - National Parks on Great Lakes, Grace Salmon - Nellie McClung, Kennedy Nichol & Alyssa Trumbley - Canadian Delicacies, Angelina Barone - Chris Hadfield, and Darin Shular - Women in WWII.
