I’m running a ‘Big Ideas’ competition for young people living or studying on the north side of Canberra (the Fraser electorate). Entries should:
* Be a video no more than 3 minutes in length;
* Describe an issue, what should be done in response, and why.
The competition will be open for entries until Friday 12 May and will be run with three separate levels: primary (K-6), secondary (7-10) and youth (year 11 until age 24).
Topics can include anything from reducing crime to improving sports participation, urban transport to water use, foreign aid to alleviating homelessness, boosting business start-ups to fostering artistic creativity in Canberra.
The judges are: Danielle Cronin (Canberra Times), Kieran Gilbert (Sky), Peter Martin (Age), Samantha Maiden (The Australian), Mark Simkin (ABC), Sarah Wiley (2GB), Annabel Crabb (ABC), Mark Davis (SMH), and Laura Tingle (AFR).
If you know any young Fraser residents with bright ideas, please encourage them to enter the competition.
