AbSec’s Tomorrow’s Generation Competition
To celebrate National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day on 4 August, AbSec wants to hear from our upcoming generation of young leaders
We’ve seen the wonderful paintings, drawings and artworks, but we know Aboriginal kids and young people have multiple talents!
In line with this year's Children’s Day theme: We are the elders of tomorrow, hear our voice, we want to hear from all our gifted Aboriginal children and young people about something that has been passed down from a community elder, that has had a significant impact.
Your entry should explain what it is that has been passed down, whether it is special knowledge of culture or a unique dance, anything goes! We want to hear your voices so we encourage you to be as creative as possible.
Kids can submit either a:
- Video entry (examples: a monologue, song/rap or dance, interview); OR
- Written entry (examples: story, poem)
AbSec’s Tomorrow’s Generation Competition will end on Sunday 16 August 2020. There will be ten $100 gift cards awarded to the finest entries.
The competition is open to Aboriginal children and young people under the age of 18. Parents, carers or guardians must provide permission for their child or young person to enter.
How to enter
It’s important that the entry is 100% your child’s (i.e. it doesn’t use samples or elements of anyone else’s work) and original (i.e. it hasn’t been used or submitted elsewhere).
For terms and conditions, and to submit your child’s entry, please use the button below.
Kids, make sure you have the permission of your parent, guardian or carer to enter the competition and get them to help you submit your entry.
How we’ll judge the winner
A panel of AbSec staff members will review the entries and select winners throughout the competition period.
We promise to exclude people with a conflict of interest (e.g. staff members who are related to competition entrants) from the judging panel.
Our panel won’t know who entered which piece, they will just be selecting on which entries they think best captures the theme ‘We are the elders of tomorrow, hear our voice’.
