The challenge is for students to create a one-minute video or A3 poster to make a positive change in attitudes to asylum seekers. If you’re seeking safety in a strange country and are viewed with suspicion, fear and criticism, your life can be very hard to bear.
By helping to make a positive difference to attitudes within their class, school and the broader community, students can make life better for people who are doing it tough.

“Kids Speak Out
Empathy, outrage, compassion and fellow feeling come through loud and clear in entries from school students in the Video and Poster competition run by BMRSG and Rural Australians for Refugees.
Messages like “Shine a light on the darkness”, “Struggle is real”, “It could be you“, “this could be your tomorrow” show a depth of heartfelt humanity and an understanding of the impact of our countries’ current policies on both refugees and people seeking asylum and on our nation’s soul. Positive messages from the students of the great contribution refugees can make to our community are an inspiration.
