Isabella Pezza wins 2nd place at 2019 BPM Student Challenge

Congratulations to Year 13 Isabella Pezza for claiming second place in the 2019 Better Public Media Student Challenge.

Isabella's essay discusses the pros and cons of commercial media versus public media with interesting insights into sensationalist reporting on the upcoming marijuana referendum and teenage behaviour. 

"Due to sensationalist news reporting, teenagers have suffered from a weight of representation that pictures them as being out-of-control, irresponsible and criminally inclined," writes Isabella. You can read Isabella's essay here.
