Hundreds of Harford County residents kicked off the holidays at Barnes & Noble, attending the 4th Annual Cultural Literacy Fair. It was sponsored by the Harford County Human Relations Commission in partnership with Harford County Public Schools and Barnes & Noble.

The fair featured interactive cultural displays highlighting various regions of the world where people have relocated, including Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas. Attendees also enjoyed STEM exercises like making ice cream, fingerprints, student performances and appearances by school mascots.

Harford County schools engaged in friendly competition to determine the school with the greatest participation at the Fair. Homestead-Wakefield Elementary School won the contest and $1,000 to buy books courtesy of the Office of Drug Control Policy. Also participating were Joppatowne High School, Edgewood High School, Jarrettsville Elementary School, Patterson Mill High School and Magnolia Middle School.

The Harford County Human Relations Commission is a 15-member volunteer advisory board appointed by the county executive with approval of the county council. For more information about the commission and its activities please contact the Office of Human Relations, 410-638-4739 or humanrelations@harfordcountymd.gov.
