SAIL Student Shines in Canada 150 & Me Contest

SAIL Student Barath Venkiteswaran, winner of the Canada 150& Me Contest will be heading to Montreal later this year!  Experiences Canada hosted a contest called 150&Me asking 14- to 19-year-olds to answer the question: What is the greatest opportunity or challenge facing Canada for your generation?

Participants from coast to coast were invited to express themselves through virtually any medium, including video, writing and visual arts.

From the submitted projects, 150 young people from across the country were selected to participate in regional forums in Vancouver, Winnipeg, Montreal and Halifax, with the forum topic varying from city to city. The themes include the environment, human rights, education and innovation, immigration, relationship with indigenous communities and Canadian identity.
