Student Vote 2015

Paddle Prairie School students participated in Student Vote before the October 19th federal election. Student Vote is a parallel election for students under the voting age, coinciding with federal, provincial, territorial and municipal elections. The purpose is to provide young Canadians with an opportunity to experience the voting process firsthand and build the habits of informed and engaged citizenship. During National Student Vote Week (October 13-16), elementary and high school students across Canada took on the roles of election officials and voted for the federal candidates running in their local riding. In total, 6,760 schools submitted results and 925,000 students cast a Student Vote ballot, representing all 338 federal ridings.
