Is your library community ready to tackle cyberbullying? Young Queenslanders and community groups can apply for a grant to put their ideas into action.

Grants are being offered by the Queensland Government to young Queenslanders aged 10-17 and community organisations to help tackle online bullying in their local communities.

You can apply for grants to fund a wide range of projects and initiatives that aim to address cyberbullying, such as:

• organising games, activities and youth programs
• creating information resources, artwork, videos, films, poetry, books or t-shirt designs
• developing computer games, online programs, websites, apps or social media campaigns
• other creative ideas promoting positive relationships that will help tackle cyberbullying – express yourself!

Young Queenslanders can apply for grants of $500 to $1,500, while community organisations can apply for grants of $1,500 to $5,000.

Young people will need a sponsoring organisation—such as a sporting group, community organisation or school P&C— to assist them with managing the grant funding.

Grants will be awarded to successful applicants to implement activities between 15 August and 15 November 2019.

Applications close midnight, 23 June 2019.
