Kids can win cash in ATO competition

Cash prizes are up for grabs in the ATO's competition for high school students.

High school students can improve their financial literacy – and possibly their bank balance – thanks to a competition from the Australian Tax Office.

The ATO’s Tax, Super + You competition has returned for another year, with a total $6000 to be won.

The annual competition aims to encourage high school students to think outside the box and develop creative ideas that highlight the value tax and super brings to the community.

Students in Year 7 to 12 can enter the competition. Entries close 23 August.

Finalists will be announced in September 2019.

Well-regarded Australian television presenter and personal finance expert, David Koch is part of the judging panel.

Animated videos, drawings and video skits were among the entries received last year.

A superannuation rap by a Queensland student was among last year’s winning entries.
