Calling high school students – Share your story with Takeover Melbourne

Bayside City Council is taking part in Takeover Melbourne, an initiative from ABC that creates a powerful platform for local high school students who want their story to be heard.

High school aged students are invited to share a true story about an aspect of their life. Stories can be submitted in any format: text, video or audio.

The best bit? The winning authors will work alongside ABC producers to have their story featured on ABC TV, radio or online!

What are you waiting for? Get that pen/video camera/voice recorder fired up and share your story.

Entries close 25 June 2021.
