Area students will help history come alive at a special showcase hosted by the BC Farm Museum.
Fifteen students have been selected to present the BC Farm Museum's Heritage Fair Project during Model A Day on June 3.
Museum president Syd Pickerell and volunteer Duane Rose were volunteer judges for the Fraser Valley Heritage Fair in Abbotsford, and invited some of the young history buffs to the museum.
"It's really invigorating seeing our youth put such an effort into understanding and conveying their knowledge of our pioneer history," Pickerell said.
Similar to a science fair, the fair featured student projects on various Canadian history topics. Dressed up in police uniforms, hockey attire, and traditional Mennonite garb, students handed out food and eagerly provided the judges with Canadian history facts coloured with personal experiences and eccentric stories.
The 15 students will display their projects at the farm museum in Fort Langley on June 3.
Model A vintage cars will be parked at the front entrance and on King Street, directly in front of the museum.
The BC Farm Museum exhibits British Columbia's largest pioneer collection with over 5,000 artifacts and 11,000 publications, in the heart of BC's oldest settlement, Fort Langley.
The museum is owned and operated by the volunteer BCFM Association, with support from admissions, donations, and funding from the Township of Langley.
