  • Time to get creative about tax and super

    Calling all high school students: the ATO’s Tax, Super + You competition is back for 2021.

    The ATO’s Tax, Super + You competition is a fun and engaging way for Australian high school students to learn about tax and super, unleash their creativity and potentially win some great prizes.

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

    • Junior (Year 7–9): Highlight the value of tax or super (or both) in the community
    • Senior (Year 10–12): Your first job, what you need to know about tax and super.

    Shortlisted entries in 2019External Link included raps, songs, animations, video skits and even a boardgame. Check them out and get inspired to be creative this year.

    The competition opens today, 24 May, with entries accepted up until 13 August. The winners will be decided by a judging panel, including guest judge Effie Zahos, one of Australia’s leading personal finance commentators. The public can also vote for their favourite entry in the People’s Choice Awards.

    Assistant Commissioner Sally Bektas said she was thrilled to be back on the judging panel.

    “Our Tax, Super + You competition has really shown that building financial literacy can be fun and bring out the best in students. I’m so excited to see the entries for 2021,” Sally said.

    You can watch Sally explain how to get involved on ATOtvExternal Link.

    Winners of the 2021 Tax, Super + You competition will be announced in September.
