SOUTHLAND Social Science Fair chairman Lloyd Esler is looking forward to this year’s fair.
Being held at the Invercargill Workingmen’s Club upper convention rooms, the fair will open on Wednesday, at 9am.
“School children from throughout Southland are working on around 200 exhibits, which will be on display for several days, with the fair closing on Saturday afternoon.”
Social sciences includes topics such as local history, genealogy, biography, current events, sports, farming, hobbies, disasters, historic buildings, conservation and health, he said.
Aimed at Year 5-13 pupils, Mr Esler said he was pleased with the enthusiasm around the schools, but only a third of schools took part.
“There are prizes in lots of categories. Any student with a social science project can enter
independent of their school, if the school was not participating,” he said.
