Congratulations to Seth Hutchins from Cleve for being 1 of the 35 winners of the ABC Heywire 2021 program.

Heywire puts young Australians at the centre of the conversations that shape their communities.

The ABC has run the annual regional youth project in partnership with the Australian Government since 1998.

The annual Heywire cycle begins with a storytelling competition – open to people aged 16-22, living in regional or rural Australia. Heywire encourages young people to tell stories about their life outside the major cities in text, photo, video or audio format. Over the past 17 years more than 9,000 young Australians have taken part.

Seth’s wish is to be a Commercial Pilot, see his story here:
