ABC Heywire Competition Winners

16 December 2016

The winners of the 2017 ABC's Heywire competition have been announced. Senator the Hon Fiona Nash, Minister for Regional Development congratulated 2017 Heywire winners.

The Heywire competition gives young people in regional Australia an opportunity to tell their stories through a number of ABC media platforms. These stories showcase the talent of young people living in regional Australia and the diversity of their experiences.

In February 2017 Heywire winners will attend the Heywire Regional Youth Summit in Canberra for an intensive week long program and will participate in leadership, networking and skill-building activities. Heywire winners will develop project proposals to improve life for young people in regional Australia.
