Canberrans Can Go Heywire

Are you aged 16-22, living outside Australia's big five cities? Then why not put an entry into the ABC's HEYWIRE competition. As the competition website says:
The HEYWIRE competition is now open to people aged 16 - 22, to submit a story about life in Australia outside the major cities.

Your story can be created in any form of media: text, video, photography or audio.

And while I'm on the topic of youth competitions...
