MEMBER for Murray Plains Peter Walsh is encouraging local students to enter the 2019 Parliament Prize competition.
“This year the Parliament Prize is asking students to submit a video of themselves presenting a Member’s Statement,” Mr Walsh 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 the people of their electorate.
“Students wishing to enter the competition can submit a video recording of themselves, or use an animated avatar.’’
It is open to Victorian primary and secondary school students from year 5 through to 12. Students can win $500 for themselves, as well as $1000 for their school and entries close on Friday.
