Competition now closed, reopening in 2017

People aged between 18 and 25 years have been asked to play their part in reducing road trauma by pitching their creative ideas to the Green Man Grants program.

Young people are over-represented in road trauma. Almost 250 young people have been killed on our roads and more than 6,000 hospitalised in the past five years. The Green Man Grants program aims to reduce deaths and injuries among young people by getting them to bring to life road safety ideas that resonate with their age group.

Up to ten winners were selected, partnered with industry mentors and given up to $50,000 to bring their idea to life.
