National Hoodie Day 2013 and The Other Election
Friday 30 August was National Hoodie Day 2013, and the official kick off of AIME’s The Other Election campaign. Students at Curtin University got together over pizza and muffins to celebrate and support AIME’s mentoring programs, which assists over 2,000 Indigenous high school students and 1,000 university students across the country.
AIME launched National Hoodie Day in 2010, as both a fundraiser and an initiative ‘to spread the word that Indigenous means success’. Every AIME hoodie sold supports AIME programs dedicated to helping Indigenous children to finish school.
The Other Election is AIME’s latest initiative, showcasing over 700 Indigenous students in years 10 to 12 delivering speeches as Australia’s first Indigenous Prime Minister. The top 10 students, as voted by you, will be flown to Sydney to attend workshops with Australian industry professionals, and the final 3 will then go on to Canberra to deliver their speeches in Parliament. Believe we’ll see an Indigenous Prime Minister in our lifetime, and vote today!
