The website says that "The project must be based on research that deals with family or local history. The subject could be biographical; about someone who lived in or is living in what is now Manitoba (formerly Rupert’s Land/Northwest Territories). This person may be famous or not but, ideally, they should be related to the contestant. The subject could also deal with a historical topic concerning the student’s local Manitoba community or neighbourhood. The project should make use of primary source materials".
