Student Youth Network Inc (SYN) received a $5,000 grant aimed at encouraging young radio makers to engage and educate their audience, particularly youth, through the use of community media. The grant funded a series of radio documentaries and community service announcements based on animal protection issues, which were broadcast nationally on the community radio satellite over a period of 9 months. The broadcasts featured regular on-air interviews and segments, promoting animal protection issues aimed at young people across Australia.
