It's time for high schoolers to take over

Friday 17 April 2020

Do you know a high schooler with an incredible true story about their life or community?

Takeover Melbourne is a new initiative that creates a powerful platform for young Melburnians to be heard.

We're calling on Yarra’s high school students (and those outside formal education aged 12-18) to share a story about their life and submit it to the Takeover Melbourne Competition.

We want to hear stories from student voices from across Yarra, to share with Australia.

Stories might be about identity, place, journeys, discovery, or belonging. They can be shared creatively and honestly through text, photo, video or audio.

We will share some of your stories with the Yarra community. The team at Takeover Melbourne – a partnership between the ABC, Resilient Melbourne, and councils from greater Melbourne – will choose a winner to have their story produced and shared on ABC TV, radio or online.

Entries close Friday 26 June 2020.
