Calling all young people!

We want to make the new Whitlam shops a hub for the community and a great place for young people to hang out. As well as a supermarket and other shops there will be a school across the road with open space.

Show or tell us how we can make it a place for young people and teens to spend time and you could win a $50 gift voucher! Be as creative as you like... get the pencils out and draw, cut out some photos in magazines or paste down some photos of activities that you love.

You might like to download and draw on this template and then upload it to share your ideas with us through the Entry Form on this page.

Tell us what you’d like to see. All ideas are welcome, there are no wrong answers!
Five pictures showing: a family with young children at an outdoor performance, their hands are in the air; a young girl hanging off a metal circular art sculpture, the backdrop is trees; a group of young people gathered around a table, it's a birds eye vi
