Three reasons why your students should enter the Tax, Super and You Competition
Have you got creative students? If so, the ATO wants to hear innovative and interesting ideas from year 7 10 on how they think tax and super contributes to the community.

Here are three reasons why your students should enter The Tax, Super and You Competition.

1. It's a chance to apply their knowledge

Your students don't need to be tax experts to participate in the Tax, Super and You Competition!

Aligning to the Australian Curriculum, the competition is a fun way for students to think about what they've learnt in the classroom and understand the relevance of tax and super in the community.

Even though students may not be aware, tax funds many of the services and resources that they see and use in their everyday lives! Tax collected is used to fund public schools, police and hospitals and even some things they might have never imagined like national parks and sports facilities, music and arts festivals and even the fireworks on New Year's Eve.

2. It's an opportunity to find a creative solution to a real life challenge

The Tax, Super and You Competition encourages students to get creative while learning about the role of tax and super in everyday life. Students can submit any ideas from short stories, to apps, to videos and can work in teams or individually.

3. They can get recognised by a creative expert

Students don't have to wait until they leave high school to get recognition for their great ideas. Melinda Geertz, the National Chief Executive Officer of Leo Burnett advertising agency is on the judging panel, so the competition is an excellent opportunity for aspiring marketers to show their ideas to a creative expert.
