I am passionate about High Resolves because…
I am so inspired by the passion and resolve of young people to make positive social change, and love being a part of them growing and sharing their ideas!
In 2019, we are setting up a permanent hub to cover areas of regional Victoria.
High Resolve’s national Videos for Change challenge is a powerful opportunity for your students to create and be heard while leading social change. Students from Years 7-12 are challenged to submit a one-minute video on a social issue they feel passionate about, with the chance to be featured on Network TEN’s The Project and win a share of prizes worth over $12,000!
Entries officially open in July but we will be announcing some exciting additions and prizes for this year’s competition, so be sure to register and be the first to hear the news.
