Jeunes Citoyens / Young Citizens

Avery Summerside, Prince Edward Island

Fair address: Prince Edward Island Provincial Fair

Project: Hayley Wickenheiser


The focus was on Hayley Wickenheiser and her growth in female hockey. How her determination and hard work got her where she is today.

What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

I loved learning that Hayley played hockey in a men's semi-professional league!

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

As a female, and a hockey player, doing this project really inspired me to never give up on my dreams.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

Hayley is from a small town, Shaunavon, SK and I am from a small town as well!
