Until June 3, the Young Citizens program invites the population to vote for their favorite video among those produced by young people on themes related to the history of Canada's North, as part of the centenary of the first Canadian expedition in the arctic.

“One hundred years ago, fourteen scientists, a few captains and their crew set sail to explore the unknown lands of the Beaufort Sea. Their five-year odyssey, from 1913 to 1918, was the first multidisciplinary scientific expedition to the Canadian Arctic. This Canadian-funded mission uncovered thousands of species of animals and plants, minerals and fossils, as well as Inuit artifacts from copper and other cultures. This is what the press release issued for the occasion reminds us.

To highlight this, Grades 4 through Secondary 5 students from across Canada researched and produced video clips on themes related to northern history. Until June 3, you can watch student videos, comment on them and vote for your favorite. Following this, four students selected by the jury will travel to Ottawa in November to present their film at the National Forum on Canadian History, held each year in conjunction with the presentation of the Governor General's History Awards. In fact, this year's forum, which will examine how technology influences Canadian history, will be open to the public, on site or online, by registering at www.histoirecanada.ca/forumhistoire.

But back to the video projects of our students.
