The Delta/Richmond Canadian Heritage Fair needs 12 more judges. The judges judge student research projects about Canadian Heritage topics. The students need to have used archival and library resources (primary and secondary sources) to do their research. Maybe there are some Education BEd or grad students who would enjoy being a judge at the fair?

The judges that are needed are for the Delta/Regional Fair on May 3rd in Richmond, BC at the Cultural Centre/Museum.
If they have any questions they can contact Emily So at the Richmond Museum:

Deadline to sign up to adjudicate is March 22nd.
