Experience Canada is having a contest to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017. Local students between the ages of 14 and 19 have the opportunity to travel across the country, and meet other young Canadians to work together and create their own country of the future. Our local school board says to be selected to participate, youth need to answer the question, what is Canada’s greatest challenge or opportunity facing your generation? The goal of this contest is for youth to help make our country better, and meet like-minded young Canadians across the country. For more information visit this website.
