Parliament Prize competition now open
22 May 2019
The Nationals Member for Euroa Steph Ryan is encouraging local students to enter the 2019 Parliament Prize competition.
“This year the Parliament Prize is asking students to submit a video of themselves presenting a Member’s Statement,” Ms Ryan said.
“A Member’s Statement is an opportunity for elected members to make a brief statement in Parliament of no more than 90 seconds on matters of interest and concern to them and the people of their electorate.
“Students wishing to enter the competition can submit a video recording of themselves, or use an animated avatar.
“I speak to students from our local schools regularly so I know there are a lot of students who would perform brilliantly at such a task!”
The competition is open to Victorian primary and secondary school students from year 5 through to 12, with categories of years 5-6, years 7-9 and years 10-12.
Students can win $500 for themselves, as well as $1,000 for their school.
