Local students encouraged to compete in Parliament Prize

The Nationals Member for Lowan, Emma Kealy is encouraging local students to enter the 2020 Parliament Prize competition.

Ms Kealy said the Parliament Prize was an annual competition that provides students with a chance to experience the parliamentary process and raise awareness on a matter that is important to them.

“This year the Parliament Prize is asking students to submit a video of themselves presenting a Member’s Statement,” Ms Kealy said.

“A Member’s Statement is an opportunity for elected members to make a brief statement in Parliament on matters of interest and concern to them and the people of their electorate in no more than 90 seconds.

“I regularly speak to students from our local schools so I know there are a lot of students who would perform brilliantly at such a task!”

Students wishing to enter the competition can submit a video recording of themselves or use an animated avatar.

The competition is open to Victorian primary and secondary school students from year 5 through to 12, with age categories of Years 5-6, 7-9 and 10-12.

Students can win $500 for themselves, as well as $1,000 for their school.
