The ATO’s Tax, Super + You competition is back-It’s time for high school students to get creative about tax and super!

The ATO’s all-new Tax, Super + You website is now live, so there’s no better time to run the Tax, Super + You competition!

The Tax, Super + You competition is a great opportunity for Australian high school students to unleash their creativity, while also learning the value of our tax and superannuation systems.

Not only does it help build financial literacy in students, but they also have a chance to win some great prizes for themselves and their schools.

Working individually or as part of a team, students are invited to write, make or film a creative entry for their topic:

  • Junior (Year 7–9): Tax, Super + Me – How tax impacts me in my daily life.
  • Senior (Year 10–12): Top four things I need to know about tax and super when I start my first job.

Shortlisted entries from 2021 included films, stop motion videos, songs, rap, animations, and even a comic! Check them out for some inspiration!

Deputy Commissioner Hoa Wood is one of the judges and is excited to be back on the panel this year.

‘I love the Tax, Super + You competition. It shows how learning about tax and super can be fun, and the creativity of the students is something else!’ Hoa said.

You can watch Hoa talk about the competition and how students can get involved on ATOtv.

Entries close on 19 August 2022, with the winners to be announced in October. The winners will be decided by a judging panel including guest judge Madeleine Morris, News Breakfast Finance Presenter at ABC News Breakfast. The public will also be able to vote for their favourite entry in the People’s Choice Awards in September.
