18 schools participate in I Dream Challenge

2013 has provided us with another opportunity to partner with Education Queensland on the I Dream Program. We are proud to announce the winner is Carole Park State School, who created an inspirational 5-minute video that celebrated differences in a clever, upbeat and motivational way.

“What an inspiring short film making international local. From the outset an emotionally powerful visual presentation full of happiness and hope. I had a shiver up my spine more than once. Excellent song choice to express the theme and sense of inclusiveness of Carole Park State School,” said Anita Heiss, I Dream judging panel.

This year's challenge focused on celebrating differences and took inspiration from three wonderful books, Same but little bit diff’rent by Kylie Dunstan, Mirror by Jeannie Baker, and Our World - Bardi Jaawi – Life at Ardiyooloon by One Arm Point Remote Community School. These books were supplied to 50 schools to assist and motivate students in the challenge.

The project generated a total of 18 video submissions. The shortlisted schools include Carole Park State School, Darling Heights State School, Woodridge, Blackwater and Crestmead State School. The submissions were outstanding and all celebrated differences within their school community, in diverse and unique ways. All the judges felt very privileged to have been part of the process and recognise the work and effort the groups of students put it. It was very difficult to only select one winner and we highly commend all who took part.

We would like to thank all schools that participated in the ILF I Dream Challenge.
