Song Verse Writing Competition

Win one of 3 x $50 vouchers in our song verse writing competition.

Our local musician, Massiel Barros-Torning has written a song especially for our project called ‘We Remember’. It accompanies one of our eBooks that are being created for our programs for parents and educators who support children from defence families.

Watch and listen to Massiel’s song here: We Remember and enjoy the beautiful fabric art work of our Armidale children’s storyteller, Helen Evans.

Alternatively, you can hear the studio recording here:

Album cover design by Stephen Dobson

The words and guitar and piano keyboard chords can be found here: Chords-and-Lyrics-We-Remember-by-Massiel

Write one of your own verses for Massiel’s song and enter it in our competition in one of the categories below:

Category 1: Children 12 years and under

Category 2: Teenagers and adults

Category 3: Open age or joint entries where one person is an adult
