The ABC is calling for stories from young people aged 16-22 for the Heywire Competition! This annual storytelling competition showcases what life is like in regional, rural and remote Australia. 40 winners, chosen from right across Australia, will work with ABC producers to see their stories featured on the ABC. They also receive an all-expenses paid trip to the Heywire Regional Youth Summit, where winners come together to discuss how life could be improved for young people in their communities.

Enter your story by September 16th!
