The winners includes Abi Smithson with her shoe line Love Sandal, Faith Guppy with her literature project Books for Kids, Made by Kids and Cassidy Allen with a thrift shopping app.

Keeping with a similar theme, The Barbie Wishes foundation asked Canadians to nominate someone in their life that merited something extra special over the holidays by donating $1 and sharing their nominations on social media.
