Thirteen McIsaac School students and their nine projects took part in the Red River Heritage Fair in Winnipeg last week. The students were the top winners in the local Heritage Fair held in March. One of the local organizers Christine Williams says the students did really well in Winnipeg. She says their school for the second year in a row won the School Spirit Award and they had Ethan Patterson winning two awards the St. Boniface French Culture Award and the Hong Kong Military Veterans Commemorative Award, Joel Williams won the Juno Beach Center Heroic Stories Award, Ava Williams and Sara Mansell won the Manitoba Sports Hall Of Fame Award and Cassidy Alexander and Niki Keramydas won Honorable Mention from the Manitoba Historical Society.
