The top prize on offer is $1,000 cash and an opportunity for the winning film maker to win an all-expenses paid trip for them and a guardian to fly to Canberra to attend Parliament House to present their film to Australian Prime Minster, Tony Abbott. $1,000 prizes are also available for 2nd, 3rd and 4th placed film makers to be announced at a formal awards ceremony later in the year.
Acting Sergeant Tam McKeown who created the SAY Project said “young people are often reluctant to take on-board the advice delivered to them by adults, whether it’s about the use of illegal drugs, road safety or any other community safety topic. The SAY Project aims to harness their enthusiasm, innovation and creativity to empower them to become educators of other youth on topical subjects.”
This year’s topic “Making Your Community Drug Free and Drug Aware” is supported by corporate partners local Lions Clubs and Murdoch University. You must have the support of your school or be a member of an established youth organisation to participate in the Project. More than 300,000 young people are eligible to participate
