Young Citizens Program


Congratulations to Willow Lemire on receiving an Honourable Mention! Stay tuned for 2019 updates!

2019 Young Citizens Contest

This year, Canada's History Society will be offering the Young Citizens contest in a similar format to 2018. Videos will be again submitted on a voluntary basis (rather than amounts being allotted to each province and territory) and between four and six students nation-wide will be selected to attend the Governor-General's History Awards in Nov. 2019, along with their parents.

 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 5thPlease note that only projects created by an individual student are eligible for the Young Citizens program (due to rules set by Canada’s History). Students who created a project together may submit two separate videos and compete against each other in the national contest.

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. The extent of Heritage Saskatchewan's involvement is yet to be determined.
