Young Citizens 2021
Canada’s National History Society is launching the tenth edition of the Young Citizens program. Since the program’s inception in 2012, more than 1,100 projects have been created by young Canadians who share a passion for history and are great leaders in their schools and communities. Kristin Smith, one of the program’s first alumni, joined us in recognizing this milestone by fondly reflecting on her own Young Citizens experience.
The Society looks forward to welcoming more students into a national community of young storytellers. Students aged 10 to 18 are encouraged to produce a short video on the topic they explored as part of their virtual Heritage Fair project — or any other relevant social studies research project — taking the form of a journalistic report or a short documentary.
Videos are due to Canada’s National History Society no later than June 8, 2021. Starting June 14, Canadians will be able to vote for their favourite videos.
