Twelve students were selected from across Newfoundland and Labrador at the Regional Heritage Fairs to create captivating news-style videos on their topics as part of the Young Citizens Program. The videos were posted online for public viewing, commenting and voting. Two students from each province/territory were then chosen for the award, with one recipient selected via popular vote, and the other selected by a panel of judges. Clare and Klaire will represent our province in Ottawa this fall at Canada’s History Society’s National Youth Forum, attending alongside 24 other delegates from across the country.
