Topic: Changing Attitudes to Asylum Seekers.

The Blue Mountains Refugee Support Group in conjunction with Rural Australian for Refugees are running a high school student video/poster competition that can be done completely at home.

We are challenging young Australians to make a 1 minute video or an A3 poster which seeks to make a positive change in attitudes to people seeking asylum. This is a great opportunity to change hearts and minds and inspire positive change for refugees.

Heaps of resources are provided for student and teachers including assessment tasks, class activities, fact sheets and links to online resources.

Entries can be uploaded now but the final deadline is on July 31, with winners announced in September 2020. Cash prizes to be won.

Queries may be directed to Joy Connor, Chair: Blue Mountains Refugee Support Group
