Student Vote is a project of Civix Canada whose aim is to provide students with an opportunity to exercise the democratic process firsthand and practice the habits of informed and engaging citizenship.
The Student Vote was held on September 17, 2021 at Leaf Rapids Education Centre, at the high school lobby. This is the fifth time that Leaf Rapids School has been participating in the student vote, and the first school in Frontier School Division to join other schools in Canada in this nationwide Student Vote.
