Heritage Fair Awards
The Heritage Fairs Program is about bringing people together to make history come alive.
Students from grades 4 to 10 are invited and encouraged to research and construct a historical project of choice, and present it in a public forum. Power Pioneers sponsor both the B.C. Regional Fairs and the B.C. Provincial Fair. We offer an award at the regional level for the project that best represents some aspect of the history of BC Hydro or its predecessor companies. If there is no project meeting the criteria, the award may be presented to a project showcasing a B.C. pioneer. The award consists of the Power Pioneers book Gaslights to Gigawatts, a Certificate and a $100 prize.
Our members attend Regional Fairs held throughout the province in the spring to assist with interviewing the students, judging the entries and presenting the Power Pioneers award.
