Uni students in line for $20,000 boost

PROSPECTIVE first year Charles Sturt University students are encouraged to harness their creativity and be in the running for a $20,000 prize.

The You + CSU competition gives prospective first year students a chance to win $20,000 towards the cost of their living, study and accommodation expenses.

Port Macquarie campus student hopefuls, who meet the criteria, and prospective students from our region to other CSU campuses are eligible to apply.

The competition asks entrants to upload a video describing what their ultimate CSU experience would be like.

Last year's winner Stuart Dundas won the major prize with a parody video music video in which he rapped about why CSU was the place for him.

Now at the end of a successful first year of university life, Mr Dundas encouraged this year's entrants to focus more on the spirit of the competition than technical proficiency.

Entries for the competition are now open to all Australian school leavers and TAFE graduates from 2010, 2011 or 2012 who intend to begin their first university degree, full-time, on campus at CSU next year.

The winner will be awarded the role of CSU digital ambassador for 2013.

More details are available at www.csu.edu.au

Entries are open until December 9.
