Scholarship Topic

The essay topic for 2023 is:

The most recent federal election in September of 2021 saw just over 62% of eligible citizens vote. Even more recently, in June of 2022, Ontario recorded the lowest turnout in election history of 43.5%. Voting is one of the positive things that citizens can do to express their ideas and preferences. If everyone opted out, we would be handing decisions to a small segment of our population and that’s not the best use of our citizenship rights and obligations. Without referencing your own political affiliation, provide your insights on the following questions:
  • What does it take to be an informed voter?
  • Why is it important to exercise your right to vote?
  • What would motivate you and your peers to participate in the next election?
 Submit your assignment in a format that best suits your skills and interests (ex. essay (approximately750 words), video, presentation, artwork etc.)
