30 May, 2019 –
Are you a young Queenslander (10-17 years), community group, P&C, or sporting club with a great idea to tackle cyberbullying? Put your idea into action.
Grants are being offered to young Queenslanders aged 10-17 and community organisations to help stop cyberbullying.
You can apply for a grant to fund a wide range of projects and initiatives, such as:
- games, activities and youth programs
- information resources, artwork, videos, films, poetry, books or t-shirt designs
- computer games, online programs, websites, apps or social media campaigns
- other creative ideas that will help tackle cyberbullying – express yourself!
Young Queenslanders can apply for grants from $500 to $1,500, while community organisations can apply for grants from $1,500 to $5,000.
Importantly, these grants aim to give young people a voice, and position them to be part of the solution to cyberbullying.
Young people talk to each other, and they listen to each other. When young people take a stand against cyberbullying, and take on that leadership role amongst their peers, they can have an immense influence for positive change.
There isn’t one single thing that will end cyberbullying, but everyone in the community can help prevent and respond to cyberbullying to make the online environment safer for our children and young people.
These grants are in response to last year’s Anti-Cyberbullying Taskforce Report.
Grant applications close 23 June 2019.
Grants will be awarded to successful applicants to implement programs between 15 August and 15 November 2019.
