Share your story! Aboriginal storytelling competition extended

21/03/2018


Are you an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander aged 12-14? Do you know someone who is? Positive Choices wants to hear your story.

Enter the Positive Choices story-telling competition for the chance to win a MacBook Air or $500 JB HiFi voucher.

Participants need to submit a story about the positive choices or influences in their lives. This can be anything from the positive choices you’ve made when someone tries to make you do something you don’t want to do, the people you look up to and why they inspire you, why you choose not drink or smoke, or what you love most about your community.

How you do this is up to you. Entries can be written as a story, as an artwork with a story, as a video, speech or song – you decide! Write your story in 400 words, or record it in 4 min audio recording and submit here.

Get your applications in soon - the deadline for the competition has been extended until April 30th 2018.

If you’re a parent, let your child know about the competition and support them in entering. Teachers and other professionals working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth are encouraged to spread the word to ensure we hear as many positive stories as possible.
