Approximately 800 northern school students are in Prince Albert this week for a major arts fair.


The annual event is hosted by the Prince Albert Grand Council and includes competitions in dancing, singing, speech-making and other disciplines.


Teacher Debra Hartwell of the Keewatin Elementary School in Red Earth says the event is a special time for her students as they eagerly anticipate showcasing their talents.


Elementary-aged students finish competing today, while the bigger kids start tomorrow.


Closing ceremonies take place Thursday night.
