The campaign empowered students to develop a positive vision for the future of education. Students had the opportunity to take their ideas all the way to Canberra to be answered by The Hon Peter Garrett MP, Federal Minister for School Education, Early Childhood and Youth.

Here is a word from the Hon. Minister Peter Garrett himself!
In partnership with OurSay, an online Q&A forum, thousands of students from across the country had the opportunity to share their vision by asking questions about what matters most to them in education. Young people competed to get their friends to vote for their questions using video and social networks such as Facebook and YouTube. Student ShoutOut! that culminated in a nationally broadcasted forum at Parliament House in Canberra, where the winning students will have the opportunity to ask their questions to Minister Garrett.
We launched the campaign at six national workshops (Brisbane, Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Darwin) with 150 young champions, who are driving the campaign with their vision and big ideas on education.
Student ShoutOut! is the first of many campaigns and initiatives in Centre for New Public Education’s plan to inspire and mobilise a movement of young people who are shaping their own education and learning.
