The ABC are asking schools to work together with their local indigenous community, to translate the Marrin Gamu song into the first language of their area.
They’ve provided resources and links to examples of work (including the winners) from previous years, to inspire and help you.
There are some rules:
You must engage your local Indigenous community for assistance in translating the Marrin Gamu song.
Once you’ve got a translated version of the song and perfected it, you’ll have to record a video and send it to ABC Education (their website can only accept videos up to 300MB, so if you create a larger file size, email them for instructions on what to do).
Don’t forget to include description details of the language the song is in and your location.
The competition is open now and closes at 5pm, 30 August 2019 (AEST)
