Young Citizens 2016

Recent Regional Heritage Fair participant Sukhmandip Kang has been chosen to represent the Delta/Surrey Region in a Canada-wide Young Citizens video contest. Sukhmandip, a grade 7 student at Heath Elementary, received a Canada’s History Award for her project on the RCMP at this year’s Delta Regional Heritage Fair.

Young Citizens is a national video competition and a complementary component of Heritage Fairs across Canada. 200 students between the ages of 10 and 16, from all provinces and territories will participate in Young Citizens.  These videos are ultimately reviewed by a panel of judges; however, 50% of the final score on a project is determined by the public. That means you! Yes, all the student videos are also posted online so that all Canadians can see their hard work. Public online voting opened June 13, 2016 and will close at midnight on July 6, 2016. Winners receive a trip to Ottawa to screen their films at the Canada’s History Forum.

You can help send Sukhmandip Kang to Ottawa by voting for her video!
