The Organisational Committee for Greek National Day under the auspices of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia and in conjunction with the General Secretariat for Greeks Abroad hosted a state-wide student and youth competition titled “Ambassadors 200”.
The aim of this competition was for the youth of Victoria to have the opportunity to actively participate in the celebration of the 200th anniversary of the beginning of the Greek Revolution.
Participants were asked to explain what 1821 means to them. Each participant had the opportunity to present their views through an essay, a poem, a drawing, a PowerPoint presentation, a poster, an interview, a song, a painting or an object.
There were over 400 students who took part in this competition.
There were 111 students from Oakleigh Grammar who participated, of which 64 won and were titled “Ambassadors 200”.
