A few setup reminders for Heritage Fair:
1) Any student needing an outlet must bring an extension cord. We will provide outlets at their station, but an extension cord must be brought to accommodate their equipment.
2) There is no guarantee of Internet availability at the fair.
3) Set-up of projects is from 8:00 am – 8:55 am. Opening ceremonies will start promptly at 9:00 am.
4) Students will be divided into groups of three. As one group is being judged, the other two groups will be participating in historical based workshops.
5) According to the National Heritage Rules, there is to be no other person / guest on the floor at the time of judging: only the judges and students being judged may be on the floor together.
