Teen writers ebook – 2013 Teenage Blogging Competition

For the second year of our blogging competition for high school students, we asked teenagers to tell us parents anything we needed to hear. We picked five posts to feature each day of National Youth Week, but really, it is impossible to judge a teenager’s heartfelt words to parents. All kids have something valuable to say.

1stAvailable.com.au supported our young writers by providing $500 in prize money. In return, we would really appreciate it if you could help us thank them in the following way.

1stAvailable.com.au seeks to make access to healthcare appointments easy by allowing you to book an appointment 24×7, online or through their mobile app rather than by telephone only when the practice is open and you are busy. By registering as a patient member on 1stAvailable.com.au you are helping the company attract many more healthcare providers to come online. If your preferred provider is not yet available through 1stAvailable.com.au, you can request they join when you sign up. They will let you know the moment a healthcare provider has signed up in your area. It makes access to healthcare easy, so join up today!
