Do you want to work with journalists and social media experts to help shape the future of news and media?

On November 19-20, Crinkling News is launching MediaMe, Australia’s first media literacy conference for young people. Kids and teens from all over the country will get together to find ways to understand the media and make better choices about what and who to trust.

The conference participants will put together an action plan for the government saying what they think needs to be done to help young people develop media skills. Two participants will also cover the conference for Crinkling News as junior reporters.

LOST IN BOOKS is looking for two delegates from western and south-western Sydney to attend MediaMe.

The two delegates will:

  • Attend the MediaMe conference
  • Win a 6-month subscription to Crinkling News for their school
  • Win a $30 voucher to LOST IN BOOKS.
