Three Manitoba high school students have been chosen among 30 youth from across Canada to participate in a six-day national forum on bilingual education being held next month in Vancouver.
Stéphanie Demers and Kim Laberinto of Winnipeg and Liam Riddell of Swan River will meet with high school students from eight other provinces and two territories on Aug. 22-27 for the 10thannual French for the Future National Ambassador Youth Forum (NAYF) to learn about issues surrounding bilingualism and the importance of a bilingual education.
The students will participate in leadership and educational activities focused on the French language and French Canadian culture.
The students were selected "for their proven leadership and engagement in French-focused activities, within and beyond the classroom," a press release said.
After the forum, the students are asked to return to their home towns to promote bilingualism.
