News: Grandview Heights' Student Aces Citizenship Challenge

Historica Canada has named Rahul Bhutani, a Grade 8 student at Grandview Heights School, one of the winners of the 2013 Citizenship Challenge. Out of 57,000 participants, 14-year-old Rahul was received “Student Citizen of the Year” for getting 100 per cent on the challenge.

Rahul has won an all-expenses paid trip to Ottawa from March 20 to 22. While in the Capital he will explore Canada's history and culture with tours of Parliament Hill, Rideau Hall, the National Gallery of Canada and the Canadian War Museum.

Rahul says, "I took this challenge online because I love Canada and I wanted to see how much I knew about Canada; luckily I knew a lot because I got 100 per cent! I think it is very important to know about the country you reside in.”
