The Federal Government launched the online video competition to increase volunteering participation among young people in April.

Check out Minister Mark Butler’s video on volunteering.

The Government’s National Volunteering Strategy identified that the rate of youth volunteering is below the national average and needs to be better supported and encouraged.

The Volunteering Video Competition for Young People invites young Australians to create a video that will promote ways for young people to be involved in their community and capture the enjoyment, fun and social interaction that volunteering brings.

The competition deadline is 5pm AEST Sunday July 22 2012. You can follow the competition’s progress on Facebook and Twitter.

The theme for the competition is “Your Passion, Our Nation. Volunteer Now!”

Entrants to the competition will be divided into two age groups:
i. Category A – Aged 15 to under 18 years; and
ii. Category B – Aged 18 to under 25 years.

Entrants are required to submit a 30 to 60 second audiovisual advertisement to promote volunteering to young people.

Submissions received will be published online.
