11 students from Newfoundland and Labrador have been chosen to participate in this year's Young Citizen program! These students were chosen at the Regional Heritage Fairs for their outstanding projects, passion for their topic and excellent communication skills.

Now the students have created videos about their projects and they need your vote! Two students from Newfoundland and Labrador will be chosen as 2016 Young Citizens and will receive a trip to Ottawa to attend Canada's History Forum. Voting counts for 50% of the student's score, with a panel of judges reviewing the videos and selecting the final recipients. Voting closes at midnight on July 6!

 The Newfoundland and Labrador Heritage Fairs have been a project of the HSA since 1997 and have seen participation from over 116,000 students.
