From October to December, young people from military families and Cadet organizations, aged 13 to 18, were invited to pitch a personal story idea or report unique to their lives, as part of the 2021 CAF Newspapers’ Youth Reporter Competition.
The top six finalists were selected by a review committee in February. The unique stories represent youth experiences from military communities and Cadet organizations in Nova Scotia, Quebec, British Columbia, Ontario and Saskatchewan. Each finalist was given a few weeks to draft their unique, personal stories, based on their original story idea.
