250 incidents of domestic and family violence are reported every day in Queensland. 1 woman dies almost every week across Australia at the hands of a current or former partner.

We are asking teachers to take part in and help spread the message that domestic and family violence is not okay by encouraging your students to make their voices heard and help break the cycle of domestic and family violence.

Your students will have the chance to have their lyrics included in a song by Australian hip-hop artist, Illy. The prize will also include a VIP In-Studio experience with him.

Kids just have to submit an original verse (video or written) to enter the competition.

Entering the competition is easy. Students need to write song lyrics around the theme of domestic and family violence and what it means to them. They can then record their song, or simply submit the words.
