SAY is now open for 2016!
Western Australia Police are once again giving students the chance to Make a Movie, Make a Stand, Make a Difference through the Students Advising Youth (SAY) Project for 2016. This year the Project will focus on “The impact of alcohol and other drug misuse on family violence”. In groups of three, students aged between 12 and 18 years are invited to research and compile a 90 – 105 second film to show their view on family violence and how alcohol and drugs relate to this.
The project culminates in an Awards Ceremony on the 3rd of November where the top ten group entrants will share $8,000 in prize money. The WA Lions Drug Education Foundation and the Lions Club of Mandurah have kindly donated a total of $10,000 in cash and prizes partnering with WA Police to deliver the project for 2016.

Young people are often reluctant to take on board the advice delivered to them by adults, whether it is about the use of illegal drugs, road safety or any other community safety topic. Emma Solberg, SAY Project Manager, said “The SAY Project aims to harness their enthusiasm, innovation and creativity to empower them to become educators of other youth on topical subjects.”
