Victorian primary and secondary schools launch competition to celebrate multiculturalism
Students from Victorian middle schools and primary schools will compete to participate in an audio and video creation competition called "One Team, One Goal" to celebrate Victoria's multiculturalism.
This competition requires elementary and middle school students to create video or audio advertisements related to Australian football to show their awareness of the importance of multiculturalism and to spread this message widely in the community. This competition provided the students with an excellent opportunity to combine their creativity with Australian football and generate a positive multicultural message.
Creative competition prizes include a school bonus of RMB 2500, a special edition of Australian football and tickets to the football matches during the Australian Football Multicultural Week. Australian football has played a powerful role in breaking down barriers between different ethnic communities, effectively promoting the understanding of each other’s values among residents of different ethnic groups and reducing differences between communities. The state government encourages students from all Victorian schools to actively participate in this competition. Check the website for details of the competition,www.education.vic.gov.au/oneteam.
