Parliament Prize competition now open

By Simon Ruppert

State Member for Euroa Steph Ryan is encouraging local students to enter the 2020 Parliament Prize competition.

Entries are now open for the Parliament Prize competition for Victorian students in three categories: Years 5 to 6, 7 to 9 and 10 to 12.

Students are invited to submit a video of a 90-second statement they would make to Parliament if they were a Member of Parliament.

“This year’s Parliament Prize is asking students to submit a video of themselves presenting a member’s statement,” Ms Ryan said.

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

“Last year we had some brilliant entries from students from schools across the Euroa electorate and I would love to see our area represented once again.

“There are cash prizes up for grabs for students and schools, including an award of $1000 made to each first-placed student’s school, which can be used to promote civics and citizenship and law-educated curriculum.

“The winners will be announced and presented with their prizes at a presentation at Parliament House.”
