The Junior Media Group was established in 2006 to create high impact stories and promote the positive contributions young people make in the Town of Kwinana, which in turn provides recognition and reward for their peers. The Junior Media Group also provides continuous development opportunities around associated media areas e.g. journalism, photography and graphic design.
The group meet on a weekly basis to develop articles for the Konnect youth publication, write articles for the local media and to develop their journalistic skills.
In 2010, LYRIK also set up a Senior Media Group at Gilmore College. This group included members from the Academic Extension course in year 9 and through out the second half of the year the Senior Media Group completed a number of short stories that have been published in the Konnect magazine and also uploaded on this website.
At this current time, the Senior Media Group has not continued. However, if you are interested in writting and submitting articles or short stories for the upcoming editions of Konnect we'd love to hear from you! If that's you you can contact us on 9439 0274.
Nominations Now Open!
Nominations are now open for Round 16 of the LyriK Awards! We have already recognised some pretty amazing young people in our community so far this year however, for this round we are set to recognise even more. LyriK has now increased the age for nominations to 18 years old which means that any young person between the ages of 10 and 18 years old can now be nominated for, and win, a LyriK Award!
Due to the age range changes, there have also been some changes to the way that you nominate a young person. We will now have two age groups for each category (10-14 year olds and 15-18 year olds) which will now mean that we have 2 winners for each award...effectively doubing the amount of young people that we can recognise for their positive contribution! New nomination forms have been designed and printed and will start showing up around the comunity soon, however we haven't had a chance to change the nominating process online as yet. So, if you are choosing to nominate online (either via the online form or the downladable word doc) please indicate the age of the young person in the additional comments section. This will be updated very soon, but we will appreciate your co-operation with this in the mean time.
Aside from that, the nomination process remains largely the same. So with nominations closing 2nd November 2012, what are you waiting for? Start nominating!
