Justice Heroes - With Great Gifts Comes Great Responsibility.
Write about people who are using their God-given talents to help others and build a fairer world in the 2017 Young Journalist Award, brought to you by Australian Catholics in conjunction with Australian Catholic University.
There are many people in our communities who have made the most of the gifts that God has given them, and who are using those gifts to make the world a better place.
It might be someone in your school who uses their gifts to teach others. It might be someone who has put aside a more lucrative career to become a doctor, nurse or social worker among the marginalised. It might be someone who is a passionate advocate for refugees, the homeless, those in prisons, the elderly or other forgotten people in our society.
Find a Justice Hero who inspires you, conduct and interview and write up their story for the chance to win cash and great prizes. Entries close 26 May.
