People of Mercy - Real stories of inspiring Australians in the Year of Mercy
Write a story about someone inspiring in your community for the 2016 Australian Catholics Young Journalist Award.
Our communities are full of people who have a heart for others, and who we can all learn from in this Year of Mercy in the Catholic Church.
It might be someone in your school who pays special attention to people in most need. It might be a doctor or nurse, whose care and support helps many who are unwell. It might be someone who has a special heart for refugees, the homeless, those in prisons, the elderly or other forgotten people in our society.
Find someone whose example inspires you, conduct and interview and write up their story for the chance to win cash and great prizes.
Entries to the competition have now closed. Thank you to everyone who took part this year.
Winners will be notified in late August, and their names will be published in the Spring 2016 edition.
