For 14 years Heritage NL has sponsored a poster contest highlighting heritage places in the province. We challenge students from grades K-12 to get creative – and each and every year we are thrilled with the results. From Nain on the north coast of Labrador to Trepassey on the Southern Shore of the island, students have told us why local heritage places are important to them. Today’s young people will one day be the custodians of our province’s built heritage. And our Heritage Places Poster Contest is proof positive that our province’s heritage places are of value to Newfoundlanders and Labradorians of all ages.
