Competition Sponsors

“We have to encourage creativity in children. The current education system does not prioritise this – how else will children dream and blossom, if not through creativity? Songwriting is a vital form of self-expression. Songwriting has stopped children self-harming. It has allowed them to speak about abuse and trauma. It has allowed them to express love and forgiveness. It can increase literacy. It can promote understanding.  This competition encourages every child, in every Australian state and territory to explore and create, and engage with learning in such a positive way. It’s very important to the work of the ACMF, and myself in particular.”

Don Spencer

Founder of the ACMF
