Eleven Young Citizens contestants were chosen from across the province at the HSA’s regional Heritage Fairs.

The videos were then voted upon online by the public and scored by a panel of judges. Evan and Sophia are two of 26 students from across the country who will be travelling to Ottawa as Young Citizens.
