Youth Challenges prove even more popular in 2010

The third series of DEFENCE 2020 Youth Challenges was held around Australia in all states and territories between May and July 2010. Some 150 secondary schools were involved and 91% of attendees – students, teachers and ADF personnel – voted the series Excellent/Very Good. This year participants were challenged to explore the relevance of the Spirit of ANZAC to the ADF and Australian society today. Some of the students are now working on their Participation Tasks in the hope of being selected to represent the youth of Australia at the DEFENCE 2020 NATIONAL YOUTH CHALLENGE to be held in Canberra late September.
