Twelve students from Newfoundland and Labrador have created videos on their heritage fair topics as part of the Young Citizens program.
The students were chosen at their regional fairs for their outstanding projects, passion for their topic and excellent communication skills.
The videos are now online for public viewing, commenting and voting.
