2015 Young Citizens at the History Makers Dinner held at the Canadian Museum of History.

Heritage Fair participants between the grades of 4 and 9 may be selected at a regional fair to join the Young Citizens Program. These select students will film a video about their Heritage Fair project. The videos will be available online where the public will view, comment and vote on the student’s presentations. This voting process will account for 50% of the Citizens final score.  A panel of judges will then review the videos and make their final selections. The winners will receive a trip to Ottawa to attend Canada’s History Youth Forum.
