On May 31, at the Parliament Building, we rewarded students involved in the Parlements at the elementary and secondary levels, a citizenship education project sponsored by the Jean-Charles-Bonenfant Foundation.
On this occasion, students from three primary schools and three secondary schools received an honorary plaque and a prize of 500 $. This activity aimed to honor the commitment of young people to the student council of their schools, we can read in the press release issued for this purpose.
