The 2012 Nova Scotia Provincial Heritage Fair was held at Pier 21 on 24 May 2012 and, for the third year, the CNSA presented a prize for the best use of primary sources for a history project. The Fair brings together students from around the province in grades 4 to 9. This year’s recipient was Cassie Cameron for her project “My ‘Unwritten’ Hero” which focused on the experiences of her great-grandfather, John Andrew McGee, during World War II. To complete her project Cassie used a number of sources including an unpublished manuscript, original family photographs and newspaper clippings, as well as an interview she conducted and filmed with her great-grandfather.
