Victorian Youth Week is an important way to celebrate the achievements of young people and recognise the positive contribution they make to our Community. After being postponed earlier this year due to coronavirus (COVID-19), Victorian Youth Week 2020 was a special month-long event held from 15 November to 15 December 2020, with all events to take place online. During Youth week the Moorabool Youth Action Group (YAG) held a writing competition for young people with a focus on the positive aspects of young people’s lives during Covid-19.
The competition encouraged young people to share their individual perspectives and impressions on the ‘new normalcy of the year 2020’. The theme for the writing competition was: What have been some of the positive aspects of your life during Covid-19?
The competition was open to young people aged 12 to 25 years, with prizes awarded to the winning entries 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Winners are:
