This trophy was won by Mary Sheppard (married name Davies), who was named the “Champion Pupil” at the 1927 Niagara Township Rural School Fair. Mary attended SS #4, a school in Queenston. The trophy was presented by T. Eaton Company, more popularly known as Eaton’s, once the largest department store chain in Canada. This silver trophy was found in a landfill in Dorset. The engraving inside the cup reads “Standard’s Co. International S. Co. 1/156” and has embossed images of two oxen pulling a plow with a farmer and the crest of Ontario on either side.
