Heywire is an exciting competition from the ABC, calling for stories from high school aged students in regional, rural and remote Australia.

Tell a story about an aspect of your life, where you live. Heywire is about giving Australia a window on your life and/or your community. You are unique and the place where you live is unique, and that makes your story fascinating. Personal stories are the most compelling.

Entries can be be in text format, an audio recording, via video or through photographs.

Winning stories will be featured on the ABC network and other exciting opportunities are available.

Gannawarra has been lucky enough to host Youthrive Victoria’s Dream Seeds® workshop and we are proud to be associated with this amazing organisation!

Youthrive Victoria want all young rural people to have great lives.  Its mission is to collaborate with partners, donors, communities and alumni in delivering services to young rural Victorians that assist them to develop their personal, professional and leadership capacities.

Visit their site to learn about their story, scholarship opportunities and the new Rural Youth Network.

The Rural Youth Network is a site dedicated to the many young people who are trying to effectively study or work online during this time.  It includes:

  • A Resource Hub – to access useful resources about working from home, learning online, maintaining social connection in a virtual world and more!

  • Learning Community – share tips, tricks, ask questions and support one another in the transition to online learning and study.

  • Leadership Learning Zone – access the community of amazing young rural leaders and hear what they have to say about leadership, learn new ways to become a stronger leader in your community and share your leadership tips and inspiration with others.

  • Motivation & Wellbeing Central – create a community, stay connected with other young rural Victorians daily and share support, what you are doing and help keep yourself and others motivated.

We love organisations that promote brilliantly positive messages!
