The Advocate for Children and Young People (ACYP) are asking young people to be help them compile ‘the ultimate playlist’ on Spotify.

ACYP is inviting young people across NSW to send up to three of their favourite songs to sing to, exercise to, or relax to.

They are asked to submit song choices through this form, ACYP will add approved songs to the playlist.

NSW Advocate for Children and Young People and Children’s Week Ambassador Zoë Robinson says the goal is to create a playlist young people can access whenever they want.

“This will hopefully provide some relief and entertainment during what is a challenging time for all,” she says.

All participants will be in the running to win one of 10 prizes on offer. This will be done by a random draw following the end of the submission period.

ACYP asks that song submissions are appropriate and do not contain explicit language or content. ACYP reserves the right to remove or not add any songs that are deemed to be inappropriate.

The competition has been launched today and will close at 5pm on Friday, 15 October.

“This is a challenging time for our community and it is important that we support young people,” Zoë Robinson says.

“I encourage you to share this opportunity with the young people in your networks so they will have an opportunity to participate.”

Thank you for supporting this initiative and for continuing to empower young people to lead the charge in protecting themselves and their communities throughout this pandemic.
