Calling all young people in year 10! And for those not in school, aged 15-17!

Takeover Melbourne is a chance for you to share a story about your life - it could be about an aspect or moment of your life, a challenge you've had to overcome or something important that has happened in your community. 

Submit your story in any format including writing, video, photographs and audio.

The prize...!?

The chance to work with ABC producers to have your story featured across ABC platforms! AND an all-expenses-paid place at the Takeover Melbourne Summit where winners come together to discuss what they want for the future of Melbourne to look like, and take their opinions to people who can make change happen.  

The judges are looking for a story that Melbourne needs to hear... so share your story now!
