‘Invisible’ is an inspiring image by Jason Nguyen from Caroline Chisholm Catholic College, winner of our Homelessness Photography Competition 2017.
Opportunity beckons: In the next two months our Steps Outreach Service is running a couple of cool competitions that give young people the opportunity to let their creativity shine while raising awareness and understanding about one of society’s greatest challenges – youth homelessness.
Aimed at secondary students and young people up to 25, the two competitions are:
- Design a T-shirt for Youth Homelessness
- Homelessness Photography Competition
The winning entries from each of these competitions will be included in our ‘Walk in my Shoes’ exhibition at Federation Square that will happen later this year. The exhibition will also include an exciting Augmented Reality experience.
Walk in my Shoes aims to give young people experiencing homelessness a voice while raising community awareness about youth homelessness and encouraging more people to respond to the issue and get involved to make a difference.
Details about each of the competitions can be found below.
Entries for both competitions close 1 April. Young people under the age of 18 can enter via their teacher. You will need to submit a signed entry form. Contact Anne Mitchell for a copy of the entry form, and then email her your entry and completed form. You can contact Anne on email@example.com
