Would you like to try your hand at STEM communication and put your work in front of some of Australia's top communicators? 

Submit a short communication piece covering something you have experienced/been inspired by during the NYSF Year 12 Program.

The submission should include:

  • A paragraph on a session you've attended
  • A social media post that can be adapted across platforms of your choice
  • Description of the audience it is trying to reach
  • Your creative content (article, comic, interview, name it!)

The piece can cover any individual session or even the whole Program! It can be tackled from any angle – as an interview, on-the-(virtual) ground report, musings on a topic etc. The social media post must show examples across a range of platforms of your choice.

The top 5 submissions (as judged by the NYSF), will go on to be reviewed by our STEM communication panelists, from which three winners will be chosen.

Prizes will be awarded to the top three.

Submissions may be given the opportunity to be published on the NYSF website and social channels.
