The Country to Canberra Competition

I want to see as many young women as possible get involved with politics. The Country to Canberra competition is a great way for young, rural women to get involved.

At least 10 Australian students will win an all-expenses paid ‘Power Trip’ to Canberra to meet with politicians and CEOs, undertake leadership and public speaking training, tour Parliament and much more! To enter, young women just need to create a short video or written entry on our 2017 competition question.

The aim is to upskill and empower our next generation of young rural female leaders.

To win the Power Trip prize, entrants must be:

  • Female students who are attending school in grades 10, 11 or 12 in 2017.
  • Be 15 years of age by 2 December 2017.
  • Attend a school that is located at least 50 kilometres away from a town with a population 80,000 persons or more.
