REGINA -- Heritage Saskatchewan is excited to share that it is launching an all-new program, the High School Heritage Challenge, taking place autumn 2021. Students in Grades 9-12 throughout Saskatchewan are invited to create a project on a Canada-related topic for the virtual contest.
The challenge for students is to think critically and broadly about how their topic relates to key themes: well-being, reconciliation, environmental sustainability, justice, and living heritage. A variety of formats will be accepted, including videos, websites, research papers, interviews, games, photo essays, artwork, or creative writing.
Students will be able to submit their projects starting mid-September via the Heritage Saskatchewan website and will be displayed on its virtual project gallery for all to learn from and enjoy.
Heritage Saskatchewan is accepting projects in any language to enable all youth from a variety of backgrounds to exercise their culture. Prizes include two $1, 000 education bursaries. Additional prizes to be determined.
Tuesday, October 12th, 2021 is the student submission deadline. Winners will be announced Wednesday, October 27th, 2021.
All projects will be featured on the Heritage Saskatchewan website on a public project gallery.
