2018 Young Citizens Contest
This year, for budgetary reasons, Canada's History Society is not able to offer the same contest that has been running for the past four years. Instead, videos will be submitted on a voluntary basis (rather than amounts being allotted to each province and territory) and only four students nation-wide will be selected to attend the Governor-General's History Awards in Nov. 2018, along with their parents.
Otherwise, the contest itself remains the same: students prepare four-minute videos on an aspect of their Heritage Fair topic and submit these videos to Canada’s History via Heritage Saskatchewan for a deadline of June 5th. Please note that only projects created by an individual student are eligible for the Young Citizens program (due to rules set by Canada’s History).
Videos must meet the following criteria: 1) between 3-4 minutes in length (some seconds below or above acceptable); and 2) effectively communicates the topic and story.
No students will be specifically chosen to do videos - rather, the contest will be shared with all registered teachers and students who want to participate in the contest can do so. Heritage Saskatchewan is unable to provide a workshop this year due to time constraints.
