Young Citizens Program
The Young Citizens program focuses on citizenship and is a complementary component to Heritage Fairs, an annual event where students present the results of their research on Canadian heroes, legends and key events in Canadian history. Participants in the Young Citizens program make a short video about their heritage fair topic, much like an evening news report or short documentary. The student videos are posted online where family and friends can view and share the videos. The videos are reviewed by a panel of judges for a chance to win a trip to Ottawa to attend the Canada’s History Youth Forum.
