Member for Lowan Emma Kealy is encouraging students in the region to enter a 2020 Parliament Prize competition.
Ms Kealy said the annual Parliament Prize provided students with a chance to experience the parliamentary process and raise awareness of a matter that was important to them.
“This year the Parliament Prize is asking students to submit a video of themselves presenting a Member’s Statement,” she said.
“A Member’s Statement is an opportunity for elected members to make a brief statement in parliament on matters of interest and concern to them and the people of their electorate in no more than 90 seconds.

“I regularly speak to students from our schools so I know there are a lot of students who would perform brilliantly at such a task.”
Students keen to enter the competition can submit a video recording of themselves or use an animated avatar.
The competition is open to Victorian primary and secondary students from years five to 12. Students can win $500 for themselves, as well as $1000 for their school.
Ms Kealy said more information, including terms and conditions, was available online at www.parliament.vic.gov.au/457-education-zone/3730-the-parliament-prize.
