Basel - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island

In 8 months I will become a proud citizen of this country. At my citizenship ceremony I will swear “to faithfully observe the laws of Canada including treaties with Indigenous Peoples”. I live on the traditional and unceded territory of the Abegweit First Nation. I want Canada to be the best country it can be. To achieve this we must all practice respect for the agreements between indigenous and non-indigenous Canadians.

Belle - Mermaid, Prince Edward Island

Many seem to take for granted what the soldiers sacrificed for us. Although, on Remembrance Day we have a moment of silence for those who lost their lives during wartime, most of us truly don't know exactly what they endured. My project is touching on the subjects of: what trenches were, how they were made, what soldiers ate and the experiences they faced daily.

Ben - Vancouver, British Columbia

I believe food is a amazing way to tell a culture, so I decided to dive deep into the sugar filled butter tart and the greasy poutine, to find more meaning they have to Canada!

Charles - Bathurst, New Brunswick

My project is about Stuart McLean, a great storyteller who wrote stories for his CBC radio show, The Vinyl Cafe. He traveled all across Canada sharing his hilarious stories about Dave, a record store owner and his wife, Morley and all their crazy adventures. My project shares Stuart's life story, how he made a point to get to know Canadians in all the towns and cities he visited, his love for Canadian musicians and his battle with Cancer.

Christena - Napan, New Brunswick

My project was done on my great grandfather Merton Stewart. Merton was an acclaimed prospector from Miramichi, New Brunswick who found important deposits and won national and provincial awards. Many don't know the importance of prospecting or even what it is in general, but without prospecting many important historical events such as the ever famous Klondike Gold Rush would not have happened. My video is a way of showing how one prospector, Merton Steward, impacted his field. "Prospecting, it's what makes the world go round!"

Cierra - Inverness , Prince Edward Island
