25 June, 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.
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 aged 10-17 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.
The closing date for grant applications has been extended to midnight on 21 July 2019.
Grants will be awarded to successful applicants to implement programs between
15 September and 15 December 2019.
