Narrabri Local to Represent at Heywire

ABC’s Heywire competition has been run each year in partnership with the Australian  Government since 1998. It provides people aged 16-22 living in regional or rural Australia with the chance to share their experiences of life in regional Australia and over 11,000 young Australians have taken part. Anyone with a story to tell about life outside of the big cities is encouraged to enter, with entries of any medium accepted, including text, video, audio and photo.

This year, Fenella Jamieson from Narrabri has been selected for her story My town is hurting but I still hold hope for its future. As part of her prize she will have an all-expenses paid trip to attend the Heywire Regional Youth Summit in Canberra next month along with 39 other young Australians. The summit provides winners an opportunity to inspire each other, develop ideas and share stories to help make life in regional Australia even better.

At the summit, winners ideas will be developed and have a chance to become reality through the Heywire grant program run by the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal.
