Central Coast High Schools Open Writing Competition

Amnesty International Central Coast Group is calling on Central Coast high school students to enter the inaugural Open Writing Competition. This year’s theme is Human Rights in an Age of Climate Change.

Students are to explore the significance of this relationship through Open Writing, which can be in the form of a song, poem, essay, short story, play, reflective diary, report or article with a limit of 500 words.

Prizes will be awarded in the open writing category, and for the stand out idea or creative response in each category.

Open to all high school age Central Coast students, with over $3000 worth of prizes to be won. To register and find out more please email amnesty.centralcoast@gmail.com.

All entries are to be submitted by midnight, July 1 and can be sent to amnesty.centralcoast@gmail.com, in word document format.

This competition was inspired to continue the legacy of Dr Beryl Collier and Harry Boyle and their commitment to engage young people on the Central Coast in social and environmental justice.

Convenor of the Central Coast group, Ms Hale Adasal, said: “This inaugural competition hopes to inspire and engage our local Central Coast high school students to learn how climate change will directly impact their generation, to inspire them into action and work with local organisations to build resilient communities into the future.”

Best of luck!
