Student Ambassadors cover the campaign, making headlines in the process

Last week, we asked the Student Ambassador Network to show or tell us how the 2015 federal election is unfolding in their electoral district. We would like to share some the outstanding responses that we’ve received, including interviews with candidates, interviews with family and friends, and experiences at all-candidates’ debates.
