The results of the 2017 SBS National Languages Competition are out! Four winners across the country from four age categories were awarded at a ceremony at SBS yesterday, with special guests including the Senator the Hon. Simon Birmingham, Minister for Education and Training, and competition judge and famed Eurovision singer Isaiah.
Following its success in 2016, the SBS National Languages Competition comes back this year in celebration of love of learning languages. It is a nationwide competition to engage school children and reflect on the cultural, linguistic and ethnic diversity of Australia’s multicultural society.
SBS kicked off a campaign called “Face Up to Racism Week”, which is a special week of programs during 26 February -1 March, exploring racism and prejudice in Australia.
