The House of Representatives has announced the national My First Speech competition for year 10 to 12 students across Australia.

This competition will provide the opportunity for three lucky students to be flown to Canberra with a parent or guardian to present their speeches live and undertake a program at Parliament House.

The competition asks year 10 to 12 students to consider what they would say if they were a newly elected Member of the House of Representatives and record themselves presenting the speech on video.

A website has been established for the competition at: www.aph.gov.au/myfirstspeech

Entries for the competition close at 5pm EST 31 August 2022.

For more information on the competition contact the House of Representatives, Information Management Office, email: comps.reps@aph.gov.au

This competition is a wonderful way for our next generation of community leaders to have a say in our national parliament. I hope you can promote this to students at your school.

One suggestion would be to avoid the managerialism that has spread throughout society and take an invested viewpoint that people can support.

This change in policy actually turns its back on the regions and destroys opportunities for people to grow their country communities, because who's going to go to a country community if they can't get a doctor?

It's a typical new government making a crazy mistake. It's a sugar-coated disaster, and that is how it will be seen.
