Teen happy with Instagram competition prize

A LOCAL teenager was excited to receive his prize after winning a competition run by Shire of Mundaring.

To launch the Shire's new Instagram account, a youth competition titled #whatthehilludoin was run during March.

Shire President David Lavell said dozens of great photo and video entries were received.

"We asked youths aged 13 to 18 to submit images and short videos of what they like doing in the Shire," he said.

"We were delighted with the response and seeing what teens get up to – from mountain bike riding to swimming with friends or enjoying a sunset, there were plenty of colourful entries."

After a tough judging process, the panel selected Asher Leask (13) as the winning entrant.

"Asher's photo of himself and a friend floating in the water at Lake Leschenaultia captured exactly what the competition was about and the panel loved the clever caption he included – C'hillin'," Cr Lavell said.

"Special mention to Jet Ventic who submitted a great video of him doing parkour at his school, and to Kris White who impressed the judges with his karate moves at Mundaring Weir."

Asher was presented with a mini iPad and certificate this week and said he was delighted with his prize. The two runners up also received small prizes.

"It was fantastic to see so many youth engage with the Shire on a platform they are comfortable using," Cr Lavell said.
