Apr 12, 2022

2022 heywire winners

Since 1998, Heywire has become a powerful platform for rural youth to share their stories and make a difference in their communities.

This year, hundreds of people entered from across Australia. The winners were chosen for “telling it like it is” about life in their part of the country.

The 38 ABC Heywire winners feature stories of courage, resilience and hope, including tales of escaping war in Afghanistan, keeping a local hockey club alive, caring for your community in the face of climate change and finding a language and treatment for mental illness.

The 2022 winners have worked with the ABC to produce their stories for radio and online, the results of which are available via the ABC Heywire website. 

Far South Coast Winners

Eleanor from Bellawongarah, Dharawal country and Ruby from South Pambula, Yuin country are our two local winners. We would like to congratulate both Ruby and Eleanor, along with the other 36 winners, all of whom are proud to champion life in regional, rural and remote Australia.
