In 2008 the SCAA began participating in the Saskatchewan program by awarding a prize to the project in each region that best utilizes primary sources. The SCAA also produced the SHF Participant Toolkit to help students and teachers with Archival definitions.
Though the program has changed since then, what has stayed the same for Heritage Fairs throughout has been the goals:
- to create an environment where students are excited to learn and share;
- to provide recognition for student achievement;
- to celebrate cultural diversity and multiple perspectives;
- to reveal connections between the past and present; and
- to inspire Canadians to celebrate their place in history.

Both SCAA and our friends at the Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan (PAS) are always excited to support the Saskatchewan Heritage Fairs and recognize the effort of the youth of the province has put into their projects by offering a plaque for the project in each region that makes the best use of archival or primary materials.
At the Provincial Fair a project is similarly recognized for the Archives Award, but in addition to a plaque the winner is presented with a $500 cheque from SCAA and PAS.
This year the Provincial Heritage Fair was held May 25 at Government House in Regina.
