SBS is encouraging young Australians aged 4 to 18 years to enter the competition online by visiting the attached link. The nationwide initiative is open to all school students across Australia, who are learning a language other than English and the competition closes midnight on Friday 1 September, 2017.
There are four grand prizes, one winner from each age category, who will each receive an iPad Pro 12.9 inch 256GB for the winner and one for their school. The winner along with one guardian will also be invited to the awards ceremony to be held at SBS in Sydney; along with a full day pass for two to Luna Park Sydney.
With a guardian/parents’ consent, participants will need to create a 30 second video summarizing, “What learning a language means to me?” in a language other than English. The more creative the better and entrants can choose to sing, enact, dress up in national costume, or simply describe their love for languages. Once the video is uploaded, they will also be required to fill in an entry form along with an English transcript explaining the video content.
SBS Director of Audio Language and Content, Mandi Wicks, said: “As one of the world’s most multicultural and multilingual broadcasters, SBS Radio is proud to run this fantastic competition to encourage young Australians to explore and celebrate their language learning. The competition will highlight Australia’s cultural and linguistic diversity and we look forward to receiving many entries from children showcasing their language skills for their chance to win.”
