Heritage Fairs

The Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan can help students with their Heritage Fair projects in the following ways:

Free scans:  For any student who indicates that he or she is preparing a heritage fair project, the Provincial Archives will provide you with 5 free scans of already scanned images or 2 free scans of images or documents that have not been scanned from our collection. 

Provide Research Assistance:  Our archivists will try to help you find primary source evidence related to your heritage fair topic, if your project has a Saskatchewan theme.  Please include in your enquiry that it’s for a heritage fair project and the deadline so that the Reference Archivist and prioritize it accordingly.  Students and parents are encouraged to start their archival research and make their requests for scans as early as possible!
