News champions

Students share their opinions on media and the news.    

Students aged between 10 and 17 from all over Australia gathered at MoAD for a media literacy News Champions Forum. They discussed the news, its role in our democracy and how young people are represented in Australian news media. 

Use these videos with your students to prompt discussion about what's important to them and how they would like to see media change.
