Spotlight on Young Citizens

Although Heritage Fair is over for this year, some of the budding historians that participated at the Richmond Regional Fair have been busy becoming young filmmakers, creating videos about their Heritage Fair topic.

200 students in Grades 4 through 9 from across the country have created short videos that highlight their research and emphasize the importance of their topic as part of our nation’s history. The student videos are posted online and reviewed by a panel of judges for a chance to win a trip to Ottawa.

Voting opens today so we encourage you to view and vote on their videos! Voting will close on July 6 and winners will be announced by the end of August. Two students per province and territory will be selected as part of a 26 student delegation to Ottawa in the fall, where they will attend the Canada’s History Youth Forum.

We will be featuring our 4 Young Citizens on social media over the next few weeks so we invite you to visit the Young Citizens website to meet our Richmond students, watch their videos, comment on their amazing work and cast your vote!
