Hello all you Heritage-Fair enthusiasts out there! It’s that time of year again: applications for our 2016-2017 Alumni Council are out.
Want to grow your leadership skills, meet like-minded students from across the Province, and earn volunteer service hours at the same time?!If you’ve participated in a Heritage Fair in BC and are under the age of 18, you are eligible to participate in the Alumni Program!
Council will run from November through to August– the meetings are held once a month, totaling 10 meetings. Every month’s meeting will be accompanied by a one hour assignment, as well as required blog and social media posts. Participation in the Alumni Program allows students the opportunity to remain active in the Heritage Fair community, beyond participating in the regional or provincial fairs. As such, an Alumni can be anyone who presented at a Regional or Provincial Fair, who has a passion for learning, and is engaged by Canada’s history. Currently, there are 13 spaces in the program.
The deadline to submit your applications is Friday September 30th .
If you are interested in this exciting opportunity, get in touch with your Region’s Heritage Fair Coordinator! (A list of the Coordinators can be found under the “Contact Us” tab).
