Heywire has returned in 2003 giving young people from regional and
rural Australia the chance to get their voices heard on ABC Radio
about issues that are important for them and to attend the Heywire
Youth Issues Forum at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra.

Heywire raises significant issues for young people in country areas
for wider debate. It also encourages the positive and personal
development of young community leaders.

Since 1998 over 2,000 young people have had their say through Heywire
and 200 have been a part of the Canberra Forum. You might like to
encourage the young people within your networks to participate in
Heywire.

WHAT IS HEYWIRE?

Now in its sixth year, Heywire is an ABC Radio award scheme for
regional and rural youth aged between 16 and 22 years. They are
invited to submit a story for radio about what life is like for them.
Winners are selected from each of 40 ABC regions around Australia. No
prior experience in any media form is required. Heywire is
interested in ideas not production skills.

The winning entries are produced by the ABC and broadcast on ABC
Radio -- on Local Radio, Triple J, Radio National and Radio
Australia. All stories area featured on the Heywire website. Each
winner is invited to take part in the Heywire Youth Issues Forum
which is held at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra, all
expenses paid.

HEYWIRE WEBSITE -- http://www.abc.net.au/heywire

The Heywire website contains much information of interest to
applicants, teachers, parents and anyone involved in youth and
regional affairs. Featured are the stories from past years of
Heywire; feedback from previous winners; details on the Heywire Youth
Issues Forum; activity notes; links to youth organisations.

CURRICULUM NOTES - http://www.abc.net.au/heywire/issues

easily accessed from the Heywire website and is a service provided by
the ABC to help the Heywire content be well used within schools.
