CIVIX is organizing a Student Vote parallel election for elementary and high schools coinciding with the May provincial election. Students from across the province will learn about government and the electoral process, research the issues, parties and platforms, dialogue with the family and friends, and cast ballots on the official local candidates.
This will be the ninth Student Vote project coordinated in Nova Scotia.
Nova Scotia's SpringtideCo has created a series of entertaining and informative videos for all ages.
Here is the English video for parents and teachers. Scroll down this page for the French version of the video.
