Value of ANZAC for the young Print E-mail
Written by ACM   
Thursday, 05 June 2014

The member for Baulkham Hills in the NSW Parliament, and the ACM National Campaign Director during the referendum, David Elliott has urged young people across Western Sydney to embrace the ANZAC legend and enter the ANZAC Youth Ambassadors Essay Competition, sponsored by ClubsNSW.

Mr Elliott is Parliamentary Secretary to the Premier for Youth, Homelessness and the Centenary of ANZAC. He served in the Australian Army and reached the rank of Captain. 
 

Mr Elliott is offering six students the opportunity to visit Gallipoli, France, Ypres and Westminster Abbey for Remembrance Day this year and to engage with the community on the importance of the ANZAC legacy.

 “The full narrative of the ANZAC legacy is often understated in our schools,” Mr Elliott said.

 “While Gallipoli is certainly the most well-known aspect of the ANZAC story, the efforts of Australian soldiers on the Western Front, be it in Villers-Bretonneux, Ypres or Passchendaele, played just as significant a role in shaping our national ethos. 

“Equipping our youth with the whole of the ANZAC narrative, enabling them to pass the legend on to their peers, ensures an engaging of our next generation with our history.” 

 

...sponsor...

 

 

ClubsNSW CEO Anthony Ball said that ClubsNSW was proud to sponsor the ANZAC Youth Ambassadors Essay Competition and will be encouraging young people to apply for this once in a lifetime opportunity.  “With the Centenary of ANZAC fast approaching, it is now more important than ever to encourage younger Australians to actively engage in ensuring the ANZAC legacy lives on,” he said. 

The prize will be open to school students aged 16-17, with students to visit sacred Australian historical sites and attend the Westminster Abbey Remembrance Day Service. 

Mr Elliott said this opportunity was unique to the Centenary of ANZAC and that students from all backgrounds could engage with history as a discipline while increasing their understanding of their nation. 

These students can share their experience and knowledge with others from backgrounds which may not find engagement as easy with the ANZAC narrative.” Entrants are to submit a 1000 word essay entitled “Why the Centenary of ANZAC is Important for Modern Australia” by email to This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it by 5:00PM 31 July 2014.
