17 Aug 2016 | Claire Grundy

By 2050 it is estimated that the world’s population will be 9 billion people. In order to feed the world’s growing population, farmers will need to produce more food in the next fifty years than they have in the last ten thousand years combined.

YJA 2016 Junior Honourable Mention: The Golden Voice with the Golden Heart

17 Aug 2016 | Ben Jansseen

It’s a cold Thursday night and I’m anxiously waiting for the phone to ring. My Dad had contacted 3AW to ask if I could interview Phillip Brady.  Unfortunately, he wasn’t available but his producer said that he might call back. A short time later the phone rang and greeting me was a friendly and calm voice. “Hi Ben, it’s Phillip Brady. How are you today buddy?”  “Hello Mr Brady,” I replied, “can I interview you for my article?” “Go ahead Ben, you can call me Phillip if you prefer.”


YJA 2016 Intermediate Honourable Mention: An Angel of Mercy

17 Aug 2016 | Chelsea Luders

It has been said many times that “Everything happens for a reason” but after watching my brother, Mitchell, die from cancer when he was only 13, it’s just about impossible to find any reason for that. I do believe that you don’t meet special people by accident. The right people come into your life at exactly the time you need them to be. One of those special people that I have been lucky to meet is a children’s doctor who is always doing everything for her patients and has a supercool name. She is a wonderful person and inspires me in many ways. So, I’d like to tell you about Dr Sara Bluefeather.
