Young Journalist Award 2018

Staff  |  31 January 2018

Voices of hope - Taking a stand for justice

Interview someone who is a force for good in your community for the 2018 Young Journalist Award, brought to you by Australian Catholics in conjunction with Australian Catholic University. 

There are many people in our communities who are working to make the world a better place. Who are the people working to help others, reach out to people on the margins, promote social justice issues and create a better future for everyone?

It might be an inspirational teacher or student at the school. It could be an influential sporting coach. It could be a local politician, or a worker for a community organisation, or someone else who is doing inspiring work for others.

Find a Justice Hero who inspires you, conduct and interview and write up their story for the chance to win cash and great prizes.
