Avah, along with her partners Micah and Kaitlyn, earned a spot to represent the Ottawa Heritage Fair at the Provincial Heritage Fair this past weekend in Toronto.

As part of their entry into the Provincial Heritage Fair they also made a video highlighting their topic (A History of a Woman's Role in Canada) and it is posted on the Young Citizens site. 
We want to get Avah to the National Finals in the fall - please take a moment to watch her short video and vote for her - the link is below.


The result of the popular vote will make up 50% of the selected participants - 13 participants nationally . 

A panel of judges will also review videos and select an additional 13 students nationally. All 26 students will be participate in Canada’s History Youth Forum in the fall 2017.

Starting June 12th, please be sure to share the link YoungCitizens.ca with colleagues, classmates, friends and family so the videos can be viewed and voted for by a broad audience!
