Where a single entry is produced by more than one student, the entry should be submitted by a teacher. In the event of a winning group entry, all related prize money will be sent to the school, which will take responsibility for distributing relevant amounts to individuals.
Home-schooled students are eligible for the individual student prizes, but not the school-based prizes.
All entrants are required to provide certain personal information to complete an entry form. This personal information will be used only for the purposes of the competition and within all applicable data protection and privacy laws.
Confirmation of permission for prize-winning entries to be posted on the Victorian Parliament’s website and social media will be sought from winning students and their parents/guardians prior to the winners being announced. Permission may also be sought for prize-winning students to participate in any official presentations, interviews, or photographs. Any interviews and photographs will be used for promotional purposes relating to Parliament’s education and community engagement programs.
The competition is operated and managed by the Parliament of Victoria.
Immediate family members of the Parliament of Victoria, staff of members of the Parliament of Victoria, and employees of the Parliament of Victoria are ineligible to enter
The winning students and school will be notified and, if possible, will be presented with their prizes and trophies at a ceremony at Parliament House on a date to be advised. If the ceremony cannot take place, prizes and trophies will be sent to students and schools.
Entries will be securely stored for the duration of the competition, and permanently deleted once the competition period, including the announcement and presentation of winners, has been completed. This does not include prize-winning entries.
Members of Parliament may ask to view entries from students in their electorate and will be able to view relevant videos, accompanied by the title of the video and student name.
If Members of Parliament wish to have any correspondence with a student (for example, to acknowledge a student’s participation) the Member will be directed to send correspondence through the school or parent. However, participation in the Parliament Prize does not guarantee correspondence with a Member of Parliament.
