The nationwide competition is now open to all Australian secondary students enrolled in years 10 to 12.

Students are being asked to imagine themselves as a newly elected MP and to write and present a three minute speech about an issue or issues they are passionate about.

First, second and third place winners will be flown to Canberra in November with a parent or guardian to present their speech at Parliament House.
