Sunshine Coast Get Ready Schools Competition 2020

Council is committed to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of residents and visitors to the region through working with all stakeholders involved in community safety. Council recognises building a region resilient to disasters is a shared responsibility between all levels of government, business community, non-government sector, our neighbourhoods and the individual.

Community engagement

Safety education starts with our youngest community members. As part of its Get Ready Queensland program, council invites primary students (Prep to 6) to help tell our local communities how to best to prepare for disasters. This gives them the chance to win great prizes.

To enter the competition, submit a 30 second video that encourages our community to have a disaster “WHAT-IF PLAN”.

  • a description (up to 250 words), describing the intent of the video, how you (the students) developed the message, and who you engaged with during the development of the video
  • a completed consent form with parental (or guardian), and school consent to enter the competition.

Once you have entered, your video will appear in the Sunshine Coast Get Ready Schools Competition video library.
