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.
